Head of the Tobago Business Chamber, Martin George, is calling on government to explain the rationale behind opening the country’s borders to international travel, but yet maintain only three flights per day between Trinidad and Tobago.
In an interview with the Newsday, George is quoted as saying “It appears palpably absurd that you are in a scenario where you are saying that the country’s international borders are open but yet your internal border between Trinidad an Tobago is restricted to three flights per day at reduced capacity.”
George told the media house that there is seem to be no justification, “no logic, no reason, no science, no statistics, which have been presented to support such a position and we call upon the Government to immediately take steps to bring the flights back to full number of flights.”
He said he understands that they may want to keep the capacity on the airbridge low for the purpose of physical distancing, but he reiterated that there is “absolutely no reasoning”, for their being only three flights per day.”
George is calling once against for the Government to reopen beaches, bars and restaurants as the current situation cannot continue and is not good for the economy.
He said most Trinidadians choose Tobago as their vacation destination is demanding that Tobago be fully reopened.
