LIAT on Wednesday announced that it will begin its commercial schedule on November 30 with flights operating to a limited number of destinations.
The airline will operate flights five days a week to seven destinations including Antigua, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, St. Lucia, St. Kitts, and St. Vincent. The airline plans to add other destinations to its schedule for December 2020.
LIAT in a statement said that it has completed all the training and regulatory requirements for the territories for the November 30 start. Several new procedures have also been implemented to ensure the safety of staff and passengers to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission. These include the mandatory wearing of masks at check-in and onboard, enhancement in its cleaning and sanitization protocols and new boarding procedures.
Passengers will be able to book flights via the LIAT website (www.liat.com) or the Reservations Call Centre. The airline has also published its policy for persons who will want to utilise their credits to book flights during the new limited schedule.
The airline, which is currently under administration, is being restructured following a decision by the Government of Antigua and Barbuda to reorganise the airline.
Passengers seeking refunds will have to await the outcome of the administration process.
