LIAT Extends Suspension Of Passenger Services


LIAT will extend the suspension of passenger services to May 15 given the current environment.

Chief Executive Officer, Mrs Julie Reifer-Jones explained that extension of the suspension
was based on a review by the Board of Directors and Executive Management of the airline.

“Several destinations have extended their border closures and instituted strict travel
restrictions which mean that passengers are unable to travel.” Mrs. Reifer-Jones noted
that the airline was however still operating cargo flights to several destinations.

The airline has issued an updated travel advisory for all affected passengers. Passengers
booked during the period of suspension will automatically have their bookings cancelled
and will receive a full credit. Passengers will be able to rebook as soon as the airline
resumes passenger services.

Mrs Reifer-Jones acknowledged that this was an extremely difficult time for the airline, its
employees and other stakeholders across the region. While the airline continues to operate
with a skeletal staff, she advised that the airline was working to resume operations across
the LIAT network as soon as it was feasible to do so.
