Americans told NOT to use Caribbean Airlines because of ‘potential terror threats’
The U.S. Embassy in Guyana warned on Sunday that it had received ‘unconfirmed threat information’ about a regional airline’s flights from the South American country to the United States on Monday.
The carrier at the center of the possibly security breach is Caribbean Airlines.
Americans have subsequently been told to avoid using the carrier until the issue is resolved.
The warning about the unconfirmed threats was posted on the embassy’s website on Sunday.
However no specific details have been released.
It advised all U.S. citizens in Guyana to make alternate travel arrangements through Wednesday if they were planning on traveling home on flights with Caribbean Airlines.
The airline’s representative for Guyana, Carl Stuart, said the company has elevated ‘our level of security involving the police, the military and other agencies’.
‘We have been on this since Friday,’ he told The Associated Press.
