As a result the airline has advised the travelling public of industrial action by the members of the Leeward Islands Airline Pilots Association (LIALPA).

In the ongoing negotiations for higher wages, which includes the operation of the ATR aircraft, the pilots have taken action to refuse to fly the ATR 72 aircraft until an agreement is reached.

As a consequence of this action we have not been able to operate flights scheduled with ATR 72 aircraft at this time. These actions have already resulted in a number of delays to our services.

LIAT has issued a Travel Advisory to its passengers and another will follow at 10:30 a.m. LIAT’s CEO, Julie Reifer-Jones, stated “LIAT apologises for these disruptions to our passengers and their plans and wishes to reiterate its commitment to work with LIALPA to resolve any issues.”

The following flights have been cancelled:

  • LI 560 from St. Vincent to Barbados
  • LI 300 from Barbados to Tortola
  • LI 301 from Tortola to Barbados
  • LI 512 from Antigua/St. Kitts/Tortola

Passengers are advised to contact LIAT’s Call Centre for rebooking or advice on travel.
