High winds affecting some LIAT flights

Date:

Share post:

ST JOHN’S, Antigua – LIAT wishes to advise customers travelling to/from Dominica and/or St Vincent of the possibility of cancelled flights and delayed baggage due to seasonal high winds in both countries.

The company’s aircraft have tailwind limitations, which are set by the manufacturers during the certification process and they are therefore not permitted to take off or land when the prevailing winds are beyond these limits.

The departure out of E. T. Joshua Airport and the night landings into Douglas-Charles Airport are affected by tailwinds and therefore the decision to cancel flights is taken in the interest of safety.

LIAT is also forced to restrict the number of bags on the aircraft at this time of the year when wind conditions in both Dominica and St. Vincent restrict the take-off weight of the company’s aircraft.

The current conditions are forecast to continue through to the month of April.

The company’s reservations and airport personnel are ready to assist customers who have been affected by cancellations and baggage issues due to airport limitations at this time of the year. (PR)
