LIAT will not fly into the black this year.

ST. JOHN’S, Antigua, Nov. 5 – Regional airline LIAT said late Tuesday night that it has held discussions with the pilots’ trade union, LIALPA, following the industrial action earlier in the day that left several passengers stranded throughout the regional network.

Only a limited number of flights were able to operate from Antigua, Barbados and Trinidad, the airline said.

“The company has indicated its willingness to address any legitimate issues and has given a firm commitment that it will meet with LIALPA on Wednesday, November 6, in an effort to discuss the union’s concerns,” LIAT said in a statement,

“The company remains hopeful that good sense would prevail and that there will be a resumption of its services early tomorrow,” the release further said.

LIAT also apologised to affected passengers and the public for the inconvenience caused as a result of the disruption and said additional information and updates will be provided as soon as possible.

LIAT flies to more than 21 destinations daily.
