TPP blames gov’t for lack of effective leadership after CAL flight chaos

The newly formed Tobago People’s Party (TPP) said it stands united with the residents and visitors to Tobago who endured the immense inconvenience caused by the disruptions to domestic and international flights operated by CAL.

It blamed Central Government for the lack of effective leadership and proactive measures taken.

“The people of Tobago, and Trinidad and Tobago by extension, deserve better than this, and it is high time that those who are charged with this responsibility of maintaining connectivity between the islands, the region and the world at large, address this critical issue with the urgency it demands,” the TPP release read.

The People’s National Movement’s (PNM) Tobago Council, in a statement, also said the recent cancellations had caused significant inconvenience to Tobagonians by disrupting the movement of people between the islands, causing deleterious impacts to the local economy.

It called on Caribbean Airlines and the pilots to prioritise the well-being of the travelling public, the tourism sector, and the broader economy.
