Sinanan: Get confirmed tickets to travel

Min­is­ter of Works and Trans­port Min­is­ter Ro­han Sinanan is re­mind­ing trav­ellers on the sea and air bridges that they must have con­firmed seats on flights and fer­ries dur­ing peak trav­el pe­ri­ods. And he is al­so ad­vis­ing them to head to the port or air­port ear­li­er es­pe­cial­ly dur­ing such times.

Min­is­ter Sinanan was com­ment­ing on de­vel­op­ments over the week­end, in which per­sons were strand­ed in To­ba­go af­ter sev­er­al stand­by flights on the air­bridge were can­celled.


Oth­ers al­so had trou­ble ac­cess­ing spaces on the seabridge to get off the is­land.

The Min­is­ter says "if you don't have a con­firmed tick­er, ex­pect some in­con­ve­nience, while every­thing is be­ing done to en­sure you can trav­el be­tween Trinidad and To­ba­go."

The Min­is­ter al­so says that both the Jean De la Valette and the Galleons Pas­sage were op­er­at­ing on the seabridge this week­end.

On Mon­day Caribbean Air­lines put mea­sures in place to as­sist pas­sen­gers who com­plained they were strand­ed at the air­port in To­ba­go and were un­able to ac­cess any form of trans­porta­tion.
