BA embargoes Bermuda

BRITISH Airways (BA) has embargoed all cargo from Bermuda into London as part of a security review. A spokesperson said that there was no reason to be concerned as this was a routine exercise. BA reviews the security at all of its stations to ensure that procedures are being properly followed. It is simply Bermuda’s turn to have such a review.

“It’s specific to only Bermuda,” she said of the embargo. “However, from time to time other stations undergo such an embargo during security reviews.”

The ban — in place until further notice — means any air cargo heading for the UK, Europe or beyond must now be sent via the US or Canada by other carriers.
