Home > LIAT puts on additional flight to move passengers from Dominica

ST. JOHNS, Antigua, July 16, 2009 – LIAT is making every effort to move passengers from Dominica after the carrier was forced to divert two flights from the Melville Hall Airport on Tuesday afternoon because of bad weather.

Some of those affected have already departed Dominica, however, due to limited capacity a group of passengers was further delayed at Melville Hall. LIAT has arranged an additional flight to transport them from Dominica today.

For all connecting LIAT flights, passengers are being accommodated on the first available flight.

With regard to all other carriers, including international carriers, LIAT has sought to assist passengers by seeking waivers to the payment of change fees.

LIAT takes this opportunity to apologize for the inconvenience caused to passengers and wishes to advise the travelling public that every effort is being made to get them to their various destinations as soon as possible.
