LIAT announces disruption in regular flights

LIAT Landing

LIAT (Leeward Islands Air Transport) has announced that its regular flight schedule has been disrupted due to unforeseen maintenance issues, forcing the airline to suspend its operations temporarily.

The airline is working to address these maintenance concerns and return its aircraft to their regular schedules.

However, due to logistical and supply chain issues, LIAT is unable to provide a specific timeline for the resumption of its normal flight operations.

As a result, several flights in the upcoming weeks have been canceled.

To assist affected passengers, LIAT is actively exploring all available options.

The airline’s Reservations Call Centre is reaching out to those passengers whose travel plans have been affected to provide support and assistance.

LIAT is also putting significant efforts into expediting the maintenance process to ensure a swift return to its regular schedule, which is vital for regional connectivity.

Passengers are encouraged to stay informed by monitoring their email inboxes and LIAT’s social media platforms for updates on the situation.

Given the expected high volume of inquiries, LIAT requests that passengers wait for their contact calls or, alternatively, contact the airline via email at [email protected].

    Did they bypass Dominica in their flight plan, like rumors of their water plan?

    LIAT has served the Caribbean mostly well for many decades. The airline had its problems with lateness, unexpected cancellations and other inefficiencies. However, its safety record was impeccable all throughout the many years.

    Having said tat, millions of dollars were pumped into keeping LIAT in the air by the different governments. All of that, in addition to the fact, the airline practically had a monopoly as a business. Despite this, LIAT could not even break even. It accumulated losses amounting to millions year after year. It became a huge financial burden too heavy to bear.

    Now, it’s time to have a different carrier and leave all the baggage of LIAT 1973 behind.

    “Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” It’s time to let LIAT rest in perpetual peace.

    Despite these challenges, LIAT continues to block Caribbean Air Lines (CAL), a Trinidad and Tobago owned airline, and member of CARICOM, from servicing the region where LIAT once flew. I say once flew because technically they do not fly these routes any more.

      The government of Antigua is blocking Caribbean airline they don’t care about other islands they have an international airport so they can get other airlines to fly from the USA. To their country that’s why we must drop Liat and move on.
