LIAT commences relief flights to St Maarten, BVI
Thursday, September 14, 2017

ST JOHN'S, Antigua (CMC)

Regional airline, LIAT on Thursday started limited flight operations into St Marteen and Tortola in the British Virgin Islands, both of which were severely affected by the passage of Hurricane Irma.

The Princess Juliana International Airport in St Maarten and the Terrance B Lettsome International Airport in Tortola suffered extensive damage and have been closed to commercial operations.

With the relief flights, LIAT is only transporting passengers out of these destinations. “We will not carry any commercial passengers into these destinations. This is in accordance with the conditions established by the authorities in St Maarten and the BVI that prohibits the entry of commercial passengers,” the airline noted.

Meanwhile, LIAT will continue to assist the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) in moving personnel and relief supplies into the affected area.

Passengers in the affected destinations are being urged to contact LIAT's Reservations Department for more information on the flight schedule.
