Regional airline LIAT has announced that effective October 2 it will be reducing flights to and from Grenada due to a drop in seat demands.
Corporate Communications Manager Desmond Brown said the decision came following an assessment of the performance of the Grenada market.
“In recent times we have seen a significant drop in demand for seats in that market,” Brown said adding that “based on the results of market research we had no choice but to reduce the number of daily flights to/from Grenada.”
Brown said the airline will continue to assess the viability of the Grenada market.
Due to the cut back, LIAT announced the following change in schedule which will take effect on October 2, 2012:
Grenada will be omitted from the following flights:
LI 771 Barbados to Grenada to Trinidad
LI 727 Barbados to Grenada to Trinidad
LI 726 Trinidad to Grenada to St. Vincent to Barbados
LI 338 Trinidad to Grenada to St. Vincent to Barbados
LIAT will continue to provide three daily flights to/from Grenada as follows:
LI 758 St. Vincent to Grenada to Barbados
LI 772 Trinidad to Grenada to Barbados
LI 787 Barbados to St. Vincent to Grenada to Trinidad
