ST. JOHN’S, Antigua, October 04, 2012 – LIAT wishes to advise its customers of new security measures in effect at Gate No. 9 (the Regional Lounge) of the Grantley Adams International Airport (GAIA) Inc. in Barbados.
The GAIA Inc. now requires that all passengers entering the Regional Lounge be re-screened on entry.
This means that in addition to in-transit passengers who are usually screened on entering the Regional Lounge, those passengers who were screened on entry to the main terminal building must now be re-screened on entry to the Regional Lounge.
LIAT wishes to make it clear to customers that this re-screening process is a requirement of the GAIA Inc.
The GAIA Inc. has relocated the scanner to main entrance door of the lounge so that all passengers can be screened/scanned on entry. They have advised that the relocation is temporary.
All persons leaving the Regional Lounge will also be required to be re-screened on re-entry.
In light of the new security measures, passengers are advised to make their way to Gate No. 9 well ahead of their boarding time to go through the screening process.
LIAT is one of the leading Caribbean airlines. It is owned by regional shareholders, with major shareholders being the Governments of Barbados, Antigua & Barbuda and St. Vincent & the Grenadines. More information about LIAT may be found at www.liat.com.
