LIAT could resume flights in November


Share post:

Cash-strapped regional airline, LIAT, which is undergoing a restructuring programme, is likely to return to the skies in November, a senior government minister in Antigua and Barbuda has said.

But Minister of Information Melford Nicholas told reporters that he would not want to give a specific date as to when the airline, in which Barbados and St Vincent have agreed to sell their shares, will resume its operations. Apart from Antigua and Barbuda, the other major shareholder government in the Antigua-based airline is Dominica.

“It is likely to happen in the new month, I would not want to hazard a date. There are still some operational issues . . . but from the report that was shared with us  by Prime Minister [Gaston Browne] the conditions are going to be in place for LIATto take to the skies in the new month,” he said. (Antigua Observer)
