LIAT returns to the skies after seven months


    LIAT is operating its first flight in seven months today, from the V.C. Bird International Airport in Antigua to Dominica.

    The airline will operate a limited schedule of flights when it launches its commercial schedule later in November which will return connectivity to its network, which was impacted by the shutdown.

    The airline is currently completing all the training and regulatory requirements for the territories it will be flying to.

    It is expected to announce later this week its limited schedule as well as the destinations it will be flying to.

    Also, several new procedures will be implemented to ensure the safety of passengers as well as reduce the risk of transmission of COVID.

    These include the mandatory wearing of masks at check-in and onboard, enhancement in its cleaning and sanitization protocols and new boarding procedures.
