LIAT resumes flights to southern routes
The Antigua-based regional carrier, LIAT, is resuming flights to its southern corridor tomorrow after a two-week suspension forced by the eruption of the La Soufrière in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
“The extended suspension, which affects all flights south of Dominica, is being caused by the explosive eruptions of the La Soufrière volcano in St. Vincent. These eruptions continue to spew large ash clouds into the atmosphere, forcing the closure of airports and airspace in the vicinity,” the airline said in a statement Tuesday.
The release said that due to the reduction in seismic activity at the La Soufrière volcano, LIAT 1974 Ltd. will resume services follows:
Barbados, as of 23rd April 2021
St. Lucia, as of 22nd April 2021
St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Grenada suspended until further notice.
LIAT is urging passengers to note that based on the volatility of the situation, they should monitor their e-mails and LIAT’s website for updates. Passengers wishing to reschedule are asked to contact the reservations call centre for assistance. The airline will be working with authorities to assist in relief and evacuation efforts in St. Vincent as soon as possible. LIAT will issue further updates and advisories via its website (www.liat.com) and social media platforms.
The management and staff of LIAT wish to extend prayers and sincere wishes to the people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines at this challenging time.
