LIAT to start limited flights from Monday
LIAT, The Caribbean Airline, will resume commercial operations on November 30 with flights to limited destinations.
A visit to the airline’s website www.liat.com revealed that the airline will operate flights from Thursday through Monday to seven destinations across the LIAT network. The countries included in the initial schedule are Antigua, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, St. Lucia, St. Kitts and St. Vincent.
LIAT’s return to these destinations will restore regional connections to the destinations which were impacted by the suspension of the airline’s commercial operations earlier this year.
LIAT announced that additional destinations will be added to its schedule for December 2020.
The airline has completed all training and regulatory requirements for the territories ahead of its November 30 relaunch. Also, several new procedures have been implemented to ensure the safety of staff and passengers and reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19. It will now be mandatory for passengers to wear masks at check-in and onboard, cleaning and sanitization protocols have been enhanced and new boarding procedures have been implemented.
Passengers will be able to book flights on the LIAT website or through the airline’s reservations call centre.
The airline has also published its policy for persons who want to utilise their accumulated credits to book flights during the new limited schedule. Passengers seeking refunds, however, will have to wait for the administration process to be completed.
LIAT, which is currently under administration, is being restructured following the decision of the government of Antigua and Barbuda to reorganise the airline.
