LIAT granted permission to fly to Barbados


LIAT has been granted permission to fly to Barbados, Prime Minister Gaston Browne has announced. The permission was recently granted.

Two Saturdays ago LIAT said it was forced to suspend services to two of its previously announced destinations while it awaits the approval from the relevant authorities in Barbados and St Vincent and the Grenadines, two former shareholder governments of the financially-strapped airline.

LIAT, which is now under Administration, had late last month announced the resumption of flights five days a week to seven destinations across its network.

The seven destinations are: Antigua, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, St Lucia, St Kitts, and St Vincent. LIAT said that the limited schedule of flights will return connectivity to these destinations, which were impacted by the airline’s suspension of commercial services in March due to financial problems and the COVID-19 pandemic that forced many Caribbean countries to shut down their borders.

LIAT said prior to its suspension of services, it had been operating to Barbados and St Vincent and the Grenadines “on valid flight approvals, which have not expired,” adding “ LIAT operated a scheduled flight to Barbados on Monday, Nov. 30.

  1. So man-vice Meow finally came to her senses? Them hot flashes messing with her psyche?

    Guess she finally listened to the local Bajan entrepreneurs who rely on LIAT to bring passengers for their motels, hotels etc for stayover visa appointments.

  2. Antigua News Room: You say:LIAT said prior to its suspension of services,it had been flying to Barbados and St.Vincent and the Grenadines.LIAT is a Corporation .Someone had to speak on behalf of that Corporation.Was that person Gaston Browne.I am asking because you would know yea or nay.

  3. Wonderful news for Missa Knight. He can fly down to Barbados to finally renounce his US citizenship and run for politics.

    Kudos to the admimistrator and his team. May LIAT reap much success and profits.

  4. Verify, then confirm. Hoping that this good news can be relied on.

    I barely missed being stranded, but the person organising my flight from Antigua to Barbados decided to play it safe. I was booked on another airline.

    Would prefer to choose LIAT over the others.

  5. Easy browne or his boy might not want to tell you all but they had to agree to pay up all services in advance end of story no credit for liat.
