LIAT‘s commercial passenger services will remain suspended until 30th June 2020, due to the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Chief Executive Officer, Mrs Julie Reifer-Jones reported that most of LIAT’s network remains closed to commercial passenger traffic.
While some territories have announced a reopening date, there are still many protocols to be implemented, such as testing and mandatory quarantine periods, which will allow for the safe movement of passengers.
She noted that the airline is closely monitoring the situation across the LIAT network and will resume flights when it is safe for passengers to do so.
Passengers booked during the extended period of suspension will automatically have their
bookings cancelled and will receive full airline credit for future travel.
Passengers will be able to rebook as soon as the airline announces the resumption of passenger services.
Mrs Reifer-Jones reassured the public that the airline was continuing its planning for the
resumption of operations. She noted however that there was still a great deal of
uncertainty about the date of reopening of most borders. The airline has maintained strict
protocols for its aircraft cleaning and sanitisation to ensure the health and safety of its passengers and staff.
The airline acknowledged that this was an extremely difficult time for the region and its
own staff and passengers. The CEO reassured that LIAT is still committed to keeping the
region connected especially after this crisis.
