LIAT’s Administrator Cleveland Seaforth confirmed that the airline intends to operate its first commercial flight on November 1, and that it will begin regular scheduled services to a limited number of destinations possibly one week later.
The court appointed Administrator also revealed that the airline has been granted permit to fly to the USVI and Puerto Rico.
Seaforth made the revelation in meeting of the Antigua government Cabinet following an invitation to appraise them of the airline plans. The restart of flight operations for the embattled airline coincides with Antigua’s Independence Day.
Antigua’s Prime Minister Gaston Browne who on June 27, first indicated that “LIAT will be liquidated,” pledged his government’s support to recapitalize and reconstitute the airline that employs a vast number of Antiguans.
