LIAT will continue operating across the region despite the challenges the airline is facing. This was confirmed by LIAT Chief Executive Officer Julie Reifer-Jones.
Mrs. Reifer-Jones stated that LIAT was disappointed to again see media reports circulating about the airline being on the verge of collapse. She advised that LIAT was in the midst of a restructuring exercise which included sensitive discussions with its stakeholders.
According to a press release, she noted that the media reports were not only damaging to the airline but eroded the confidence of the travelling public.
She acknowledged that the airline continued to face challenges in the context of the region’s economic prospects as well as other factors which were causing a decline in intra-regional travel. She, however, noted that the airline continues to operate its full schedule of weekly flights to its 15 destinations.
