Chief Secretary in the Tobago House of Assembly, Kelvin Charles, is expressing concern at the decision by national carrier Caribbean Airlines to introduce a TT$50 one way charge fee if passengers wish to change their flight or date of travel on domestic flights.
In a media release, Mr. Charles said he has been in conversation with Finance Minister, Colm Imbert, and Chairman of CAL, Shameer Mohammed, on the matter.
He said the change fee would have serious implications for all using the air bridge, especially Tobagonians who travel to Trinidad, often out of necessity or an emergency.
Meanwhile, President of the Tobago Hotel and Tourism Association, Chris James, told reporters at a media briefing that the move by CAL would greatly impact visitors to the island.
President of the Inter-Island Transportation Committee, Dianne Hadeed, said it’s vital that the present service is improved and reliability ensured.
