ST. JOHN’S, Antigua, Jan 10, 2014 – On January 8, 2014, LIAT (1974) Limited received notice of a penalty from the Eastern Caribbean Civil Aviation Authority (ECCAA) in connection with an incident which occurred on November 2, 2013.
LIAT’s management is reviewing these findings with its Advisors and will engage ECCAA in discussion. LIAT is committed to a fair resolution of the matter based on full and frank disclosure by all parties.
The safety and security of our passengers remains LIAT’s top priority and LIAT continues to operate in full and strict compliance with the Civil Aviation Regulations and its operating procedures and manuals.
These matters remain under review by LIAT and discussion with ECCAA. It would therefore be inappropriate to make further public comment at this time.
