LIAT working to restore published schedule
LIAT’s management confirmed that it is working to restore normalcy to its network schedule which has been impacted by unexpected weather conditions.
High winds in St. Vincent last Saturday resulted in an aircraft being grounded at the ET Joshua Airport. This resulted in passengers being unable to leave St. Vincent and the airline’s crews were also out of place which impacted other flights.Unfortunately inclement weather this week resulting in flooding at the airport and closure of ET Joshua airport again today. LIAT regrets that it has had to cancel some flights due to the airport closure,
Given the interconnectivity of our network as well as the need to ensure a safe operation of our aircraft for crew and passengers, many of our customers throughout the region have been affected. LIAT assures passengers that it is working feverishly to ensure that all those displaced are accommodated by rerouting flights, providing meals and accommodations, or by booking passengers on alternative airlines where possible.
Passengers can expect to experience some further delays and some disruption is expected for the coming days as we work to improve the situation.
In light of this, passengers booked to travel with LIAT through to November 14th may change their departure or return dates at no additional charge by contacting our call centre at1- 888-844-LIAT (5428) or their local travel agent.
We at LIAT deeply regret these unfortunate circumstances and will continue to work around the clock to ensure a speedy restoration of the published schedule. The management and staff would sincerely like to thank you for your patience and understanding during this period
