The Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) and the Ministry of Public Works were advised of a ‘threat’ received by Caribbean Airlines and immediately convened a high level security meeting with relevant security agencies and stakeholders of the airport on Sunday, February 9.
In a statement, it was noted that the officials assessed the threat and put in place a number of measures to prevent any untoward occurrence.
The Ministry and CJIA have since adopted the highest security posture to protect passengers, crew, aircraft and airport employees and to ensure the continued smooth and safe operations at the airport.
Passengers and other airport users are asked to be on the lookout for any suspicious activities or occurrences and report same to an airport security official.
A heightened security posture will remain in place over a number of days until such time as the threat is no longer deemed valid. The United States have since advised its citizens in Guyana not to travel on any CAL flights on Monday through Wednesday.
The nature of the threat was not released to the media.
