U.S receives threat information about CAL flights, warns citizens

The U.S Embassy in Guyana on Sunday announced that it has received unconfirmed threat information relating to Caribbean Airlines flights destined for the United States departing on Monday, February 10, 2014.

According to an emergency bulletin posted on the embassy’s website, “out of an abundance of caution, the Embassy advises all U.S. Citizens in Guyana traveling on Caribbean Airlines (CAL) to the United States from Monday, February 10, through Wednesday, February 12, 2014, to make alternate travel arrangements.”

The embassy bulletin did not provide any information on the type of threat or the level of the threat. News Source understands that the information may have been sent to the local embassy by U.S Intelligence agencies.

Intelligence officials in Guyana were tight lipped on information related to the U.S embassy bulletin. Some officials appeared unaware of the information related to the threats as reported by the local embassy. News Source made repeated efforts to contact officials of Caribbean Airlines in Guyana and the Cheddi Jagan airport. Those efforts were futile.

“We strongly recommend that U.S. citizens traveling to or residing in Guyana enroll in the Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). STEP enrollment gives you the latest security updates, and makes it easier for the U.S. Embassy to contact you in an emergency. If you don’t have Internet access, enroll directly with the U.S. Embassy”, the embassy release concluded.
