LIAT to increase flights to Dominica

A LIAT aircraft

Regional airline, LIAT, has announced that it will be increasing flights to Dominica and other countries affected by the passage of Hurricanes Maria and Irma.

In a statement, the airline said it will increase its flights into Dominica, St Maarten, and Tortola which “will provide greater connectivity for passengers within and outside the LIAT network.”

The new schedule will come into effect on November 16.

LIAT will increase the number of flights into Dominica from an alternating daily service to three flights per day.

Interim Chief Commercial Officer, Audra Walker said that demand is improving and the airline has been working closely with the relevant authorities to rebuild capacity to pre-Hurricane levels.

“We at LIAT are committed to helping our region stay connected and we are keen to reinstate flights where there is demand for seats, as well as cargo and Quikpak services,” Walker said.

The airline will now operate three flights a week into St Maarten and five flights weekly into Tortola.

    Sadly beggars can not be choosers and that’s what we are beggars because the government and Caricom have allowed Liat to continue with their foolishness and disgraceful service.

    Bravo LIAT!!! I guess their reason for the increase is to help move the people that are desperately running OUT of Dominica because they realize their is no hope. They not increasing flights in other to bring people to Dominica because not even those in the DIASPORA that came down to vote Skerrit wanr to come and see what Hurricane Skerrit and Maria did to Dominica. It is a FACT that People running from DA in droves everyday. By the way where are the new airlines they said would begin operations in Dominica by October 2017? Keep on lying and FOOLING people like Ian. Not me all you fooling
