Home > LIAT issues advice to Easter Holiday travellers
ST. JOHN’S, Antigua, April 07 – With the Easter Holidays approaching, regional airline LIAT on Tuesday said it expects increased passenger loads during the coming days and would like to provide some helpful travel advice to its customers.
Corporate Communications Manager Desmond Brown said that with strict security regulations in force at airports in the Caribbean and elsewhere, passengers should allow themselves enough time to go through the security checks.
“It is important that travellers get to the airport early,” Brown said, adding that “with more people travelling, it is quite likely that passengers would experience a longer waiting period to get through airport security check points”.
Brown said passengers are reminded that they should arrive at the airport to check-in at least two hours prior to their scheduled time of departure and that check-in closes 45 minutes before the plane departs.
He also said that in order to make flying as easy as possible, passengers should adhere to LIAT’s baggage limits.
“The free baggage allowance for all LIAT services is one piece at a maximum of 50 lbs or 23 kgs. In addition, passengers are allowed one piece of cabin baggage inclusive of a laptop at a maximum weight of 15 lbs,” Brown said.
Passengers should note that extra pieces of baggage (that is, pieces in excess of the above allowance) will be subject to excess baggage charges and will only be accepted on a space available (stand-by) basis.
“I would also like to remind passengers that they can log on to our web site (www.liat.com) where they can find details about our baggage policy, security tips, terms and conditions of travel and much more useful information,” the LIAT official said.
Brown said he hopes that passengers would heed the advice, adding that the aim was to make their experience as stress free and enjoyable as possible.
The management and staff of LIAT would like to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season, Brown said.
