T&T-US flights get air marshals

(Trinidad Express) An agreement has been reached between Trinidad and Tobago and the United States of America to allow air marshals on selected flights between the two countries.

This was revealed in a press release from the US Embassy on Friday.

In the release, it was noted that the agreement provided for the continued security presence of air marshals, also known as In-Flight Security Officers (IFSOs), between the two countries.

“IFSOs are security officers deployed on aircraft for the purpose of carrying out duties pursuant to aviation security. The renewed commitment will ensure that the United States and Trinidad and Tobago continue to be on the forefront of the latest methodologies and security concepts. More importantly, this agreement allows the United States and Trinidad and Tobago to continue to be part of an evolving joint global strategy to thwart terrorism in the civil aviation community now and into the future,” the release stated.
