Caribbean Airlines is reporting an increase in bookings to Tobago, just three days after the Prime Minister lifted some restrictions in an effort to boost economic activity there.
Dr Rowley announced an increase in flights on the domestic airbridge from two flights per day to six. They will fly at half capacity. Travel on the airbridge was previously limited to essential travel only.
During a press conference at the Diplomatic Centre, St Ann's, Rowley also granted permission for tours at the Caroni swamp and Buccoo Marine Park.
The amendment to the Public Health Ordinance allows reef boats in Tobago to operate at half capacity, but everyone on board must wear masks. No one is allowed to bathe on the beach or go into the Nylon Pool.
CAL head of communications Dionne Ligoure told Newsday on Monday, "Caribbean Airlines adjusted its schedule effective Monday to six flights."
She said on Monday all essential workers and standby passengers were cleared.
She said, "We continue to monitor the bookings. Based on the increased number of flights we have started carrying more passengers."
