(SNO) – Regional airline, LIAT, has denied reports that it had cancelled flights to Dominica due to political unrest there.
On Tuesday morning messages were spread via social media that the airline had stopped all flights to the island.
But LIAT said this is far from the truth.
“LIAT wishes to advise that all of its scheduled flights are operating into and out of the Douglas Charles Airport, Dominica,” the airline said in a statement on Tuesday. “No flights have been cancelled.”
The airline said the reports are all false.
“LIAT flights are operating and passengers are advised to check in on time for their flights,” it said.
Dominica has been experiencing political tension and some civil unrest since general election was called for December 6.
On Monday afternoon the main road in Marigot was blocked by burning debris, affecting several passengers who were on their way to the airport.
Road were also blocked on Tuesday morning in the Londonderry area, close to the main airport.
Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, has blamed the opposition United Workers Party for these events, a charge that has been denied.
