A flotillas of foreign vessels that traveled through international waters in the Gulf of Mexico are under investigation by the Federal Aviation Administration for potentially violating safety standards, and now the company has taken the rare step of banning passengers from the ships.
The flotons were spotted off Florida, New York and Texas, the Associated Press reported.
The agency said it is taking the steps necessary to ensure safety of all passengers and crew on the flotinas.
On Wednesday, the U.S. Coast Guard, the National Transportation Safety Board and other authorities began an investigation into whether flotas violated international shipping rules.
The National Transportation Security Administration, which has been conducting the investigation, said it received complaints from the company and is taking appropriate action.
“The Coast Guard has notified Fliggy Travel Agency that they have been notified of an incident involving an unauthorized flota,” a spokesperson for the agency said.
The Coast Guard and the Transportation Security Agency were not immediately available for comment.
The Transportation Security agency, which was established in the 1970s, is responsible for screening passengers at international airports, ports of entry and other international facilities.
The FLIGSY FLOTAS flotations in the region were spotted last week.
The vessels included the British company R&D Shipping Services, which owns the R&ad company.
R&d, based in London, operates two vessels and has been operating in the United Kingdom and other countries since 2012.
A spokesman for the company said that he has not seen the flotsas, and would not comment on whether he had a statement.
Flotas that have been flagged by the agency include the MV Bodega on the Bahamas, the MV Flotillas in the Bahamas and the MV Motegi, which operated in the South Pacific, the Bahamas International Airport in Port-au-Prince and the port of San Francisco.
Flotsas have previously been flagged at U.K. ports, including the ports of Plymouth and Portsmouth, England, according to the Maritime Safety Agency.
The company’s spokesman, James A. MacKenzie, said in an email that the vessels that were spotted in the waters off Florida and New York were being inspected by the U of S Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
The U.N. agency responsible for international maritime safety has not yet said what measures are being taken.
“We are working closely with the relevant authorities and will continue to provide updates as we move forward,” said U. N. Maritime Secretary General Fatou Bensouda.
“In accordance with the UN charter, the responsibility of the United Nations is to facilitate the effective and efficient implementation of the principles and guidelines of international law and to ensure compliance with the requirements of those principles and principles.”
