He stated that he is hopeful that within the next week or two there should be something firm in relation to charter flights for Vincy Mas.

The Prime Minister explained that the flights needs to pinned down fairly soon, so that persons who wish to return home for Carnival could book them early.

He also added that persons would have to give their employers early notice that they would be taking time off work. (CM)
