ST. JOHN’S, Antigua, Wednesday September 28, 2016 – Some of LIAT’s flights across the region have been grounded.
After calling off flights yesterday because of what was then a tropical wave, the Antigua-based carrier issued an advisory indicating that except for a few flights between Antigua, St. Maarten, St. Kitts, St. Croix and Tortola, service has been suspended.
The airline said it would provide another update later this afternoon.
The airline has advised passengers to continue monitoring official meteorological offices, disaster preparedness organizations, radio stations and the airline for further updates.
“Customers affected by the disruptions who wish to rebook for a later date will be allowed to do so without change fees or fare differences for a period of two weeks from the date of their original scheduled travel. Following the two-week grace period, passengers will be required to pay applicable fare and change fees when re-booking,” LIAT further advised.
“LIAT also wishes to advise that passengers who decide to travel but are unable to complete their journey due to disruption caused by weather conditions, will not be provided with meals, transportation, hotel accommodation etc. Passengers with onward connections are advised to contact the respective carriers,” it added.
