FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FLIGHT DISRUPTIONS DUE TO TROPICAL STORM MARIA
ST. JOHN’S, ANTIGUA, September 17, 2017 –Tropical Storm Maria continues its trek towards, and through, the region. Due to the size and nature of this weather system, national meteorological organisations have issued various warnings and watches from Barbados in the south to Anguilla in the north.
LIAT had already anticipated and acted accordingly, as a result there has been no change to the list of cancelled flights issued in the previous two Travel Advisories. We will however continue to monitor the situation and communicate to our passengers and the general public as necessary via our website(www.liat.com) and social media platforms. Persons should also monitor their local media and weather reports to remain prepared and safe.
Due to the interconnectivity of our network and the size of tropical storm Maria, passengers who continue to use our services over the next few days should expect occasional flight delays.
LIAT regrets any inconvenience caused by the delays/cancellations as a result of the passage of Tropical Storm Maria.
