Several flight cancellations as strike hits LIAT


Regional airline LIAT said its passengers should brace for flight delays and cancellations over the next few days due to industrial unrest.

“LIAT wishes to advise the travelling public that we are currently experiencing a number of delays and cancellations to our services due to industrial unrest.”

“These current irregular operations may continue to occur over the next few days as we work towards resolving the issues,” LIAT said without identifying the cause of the industrial action.

But the regional press is reporting that the strike was prompted by issues over payment.

Chief Executive Officer at LIAT, Julie Reifer-Jones, said: “LIAT’s management sincerely apologises for any disruption to the travel plans of our valued passengers at this time. We remain committed to working with our employees to resolve the issues currently impacting the delivery of our service to The Caribbean.”

LIAT, in the meantime, said its passengers should call its Reservations Team prior to leaving for the airport. The numbers include 1-888-844-LIAT (5428) toll free from most destinations within the Caribbean region, and 1-866 549-5428 for persons calling from the United States.
