Coast Guard checking vessels for Eid holidays safety

The Coast Guard has started a stringent check on the safety standards compliance of sea-going vessels as an extra precaution for the coming Azuha Eid holidays. These checks will be carried out in Male' and atolls to ensure if the vessels comply with the sea-worthiness and safety standards set out by the Transport ministry.

The Eid Holidays would be starting from Friday 5 December and will be over on Sunday 13 December enabling a 9 day long holiday for the people. A large number of people would be visiting islands in the atolls and most people travel by sea. About 20,000 people are expected to leave Male' and travel to the atolls as well as overseas to spend the holidays. Most of the flights and regular ferries are already booked and several families and groups are reported to have organised private vessels for their visit to the islands.

Coast Guard has reminded all operators and owners of vessels to have all safety measures complied and also check about weather before and during the trips in order to ensure maximum security and safety.They have also warned not to violate safety regulations and never to carry more passengers than allowed. They have also started an awareness programme for the benefit of travellers.
