A LIAT flight from Dominica to Antigua was forced to divert its 47 passengers to the Le Raizet Airport in Guadeloupe this morning after an indicator light illuminated in the cockpit.
The Management of LIAT (1974) LTD says as a precautionary procedure emergency services were on standby and the landing was uneventful with no injury to passengers or crew or damage to the aircraft.
Arrangements are being made for the affected passengers to be accommodated on another LIAT service.
The aircraft is being examined by the company’s maintenance staff and will undergo the various checks as stipulated by the manufacturer’s maintenance manual before being returned to service.
