The Tobago House of Assembly will be forming a task force with Caribbean Airlines to regularly discuss the “airbridge” that connects Trinidad and Tobago.

Tobago Secretary of Tourism Tracy Davidson-Celestine recently led a team to a meeting with Caribbean Airlines CEO Michael DiLollo “with a view to understanding CAL’s challenges in servicing the airbridge and also to understand the plan of action for ensuring a predictable and reliable service that is critical to our residents and visitors alike,” according to a government statement.

The recent talks focused on “increasing demand, cancellations, delays and incessant problems that continue to plague the airbridge,” Davidson-Celestine said.

The two sides agreed that a task force was necessary, along with an “action force to determine Tobago’s needs related to the airbridge.”

Davidson-Celestine also announced that the House of Assembly would be represented at weekly meetings under Caribbean Airlines’ Vice President of Operations Jagmohan Singh “to help chart the future direction of the airline on the domestic route.”
