LIAT addresses concerns about fares

The recent suspension of flights by REDjet has raised concerns in some sectors that this could lead to an escalation in air fares for regional travel.

LIAT wises to inform its customers and the general travelling public that it has no intention of seeking to take advantage of the suspension of services by REDjet to alter its fares in a manner that would result in any unnecessary increase in ticket prices.

Corporate Communications Manager Desmond Brown pointed out that since the suspension of flights by REDjet, there has been no increase in the fares offered by LIAT.

“In fact, to the contrary, LIAT has intensified its campaign to provide discounted seats for regional travel beginning with a series of special fares offered to distressed REDjet passengers,” Brown said.

“This was expanded to include special fares for the on-going international cricket series, as well as other promotional fares to the travelling public. These are in addition to LIAT’s regular offering of special ‘Just Go’ fares available on our web site www.liat.com.”

Brown noted that LIAT is very conscious of its central role in air transportation in the region and continues to do all possible within its constraints to provide the public with affordable fares.

He further pointed out, that as is the case with other airlines LIAT’s tickets are sold in several fare classes from the lowest to the highest class.

“On each flight tickets are sold in several fare classes. Each seat is allocated and sold in a particular fare class on each flight. LIAT has not reallocated the number of seats available in its various fare classes for any flight since 16th March 2012 at 8:00pm,” Brown said.

LIAT invites travellers to: visit www.liat.com; contact the Reservations Department at (268) 480-5601/(268) 480-5602 or their local travel agent to obtain information on available flights.

    Liat has shut down it’s commercial offices and laid off all it’s Dominican staff,hence they have less operating expenses,should not this be reflected in their fares.The savings are thus. No rent,no salaries,no maintenance on vehicles,in other words NO OVERHEAD expenses in Dominica,but yetthe prices remain the same

    I Pray that RedJet get back in the Skies soon and go to more islands so we can have more choices…Liat is and has always been about them selfs…Milking the People of the Caribbean so some managers can live the big life..

    This is to show the Caribbean and Dominicans that no Airline can survive in the caribbean than LIAT. LIAT is the old broom that know all the grooves and corners and can sweep well. This is Dominica’s Airline and i’ve benifitted from LIAT cheap fares. RED JET Cancelled it’s flights on all their passengers and LIAT still pick them up.
    CONGRATULATIONS TO LIAT, U STILL THERE.
