Regional air carrier LIAT may finally begin scheduled night flights to Dominica’s Melville Hall airport in the next few weeks.
The airline’s chief executive officer Brian Challenger told state radio DBS that in “another few weeks, we will be seeing scheduled night landings into Dominica; this certainly is our hope and our goal”.
Dominica ushered in night landing operations at Melville Hall in August 2010 with air carriers LIAT and WINAIR to mark the historic occasion.
LIAT has since then spoken of challenges in finalizing its night schedule for Dominica; however, Challenger said Tuesday, the airline has been in discussions with authorities from Dominica and the Eastern Caribbean Civil Aviation Authority (ECCAA) to remedy technical matters.
“There were some technical issues which needed to be sorted out, particularly in terms of the Civil Aviation Authority, that process is well in hand; we’re confident that we are on our way there to a resolution,” Challenger said.
