Hinkson reassures public about commercial flights
With Barbados preparing to welcome its first commercial flight following the lockdown due to COVID-19, Minster of Home Affairs Edmund Hinkson is assuring Barbadians that there is no need to fear.
Speaking to the media Friday after a motivational talk to Class 4 students at the Gordon Greenidge Primary School, Hinkson brought the country up to speed on the protocols to facilitate smooth and safe commercial flying.
Hinkson said the first flight was expected to arrive from Toronto today at 1:40 p.m.
“There is nothing to fear, Barbadians, from us essentially resuming commercial flights. We never closed down our borders but we are ensuring that all top standard protocols are in place. And we are doing it with efficiency and effectiveness because that is what we are about,” he said. (DB)
