LIAT’s Executive Manager of Cargo and Quikpak Wilbur Edwards announced that the cargo and Quikpak division was already accepting and delivering extra bags, packages, presents and other personal items to LIAT’s many destinations.
“Just take your excess bags to the nearest airport location, where our staff will help you with the process and show you our very competitive rates,” Edwards said.
“We offer airport-to-airport deliveries and a door-to-door service,” remarked Edwards, who advised this season’s procedures were designed with customer convenience as the primary consideration.
In a move to help passengers move through the airports more efficiently during the Christmas and New Year holiday periods, LIAT placed an embargo on excess baggage from December 3, 2013 to January 14, 2014.
High passenger loads during the Christmas season and the space and weight limitations of both Dash 8 and ATR aircraft are the main reason for a return to the seasonal policy.
The free baggage allowance for all LIAT services is one piece at a maximum of 50 lbs or 23 kgs. In addition, passengers are allowed one piece of cabin baggage at a maximum weight of 15 lbs.
LIAT will only accept one piece of excess baggage per customer and the total weight of the excess bag cannot exceed 50lbs. All excess baggage will incur excess baggage charges and will be transported on a standby basis only.
