Caribbean Airlines Boeing 737-800

By Caribbean News Now contributor

GEORGETOWN, Guyana -- The US embassy in Georgetown, Guyana, said on Sunday it has received unconfirmed threat information relating to Caribbean Airlines flights destined for the United States departing on Monday.

The embassy said in a security alert to American citizens that the threat related to Caribbean Airlines flights from Guyana to the US between Monday and Wednesday.

"Out of an abundance of caution" it advised US citizens intending to travel on those flights from Monday, February 10, through Wednesday, February 12, 2014, to "make alternate travel arrangements".

The airline's representative for Guyana, Carl Stuart, said security had been increased since Friday.

"We are on top of this and flights will continue as normal, but we are taking no chances," he told the Associated Press.

No further details were immediately available.
