LIAT has implemented a security surcharge on tickets in response to rising security demands and spiraling security costs.

The new security surcharge of US$1.25 per one way trip applies to all passengers, including children and infants, on all LIAT flights.

Heightened airline and airport security over the last 10 years has resulted in rising security demands on airlines. Additional security measures at many airports have been introduced including extra baggage searches and increased security around aircraft while on the ground.

Over the past several years security costs have been climbing and LIAT has been absorbing these costs in an effort to cushion the effects on its customers. With the introduction of the security surcharge, LIAT hopes to recoup some of the additional security costs.

LIAT takes the safety and security of its customers and employees very seriously and appreciates your understanding in the current circumstances.

The carrier joins more than 100 airlines worldwide which have introduced similar charges since 2001.

  4. Governments should seriously consider ferrying between caribbean islands, much cheaper, you can carry a lot more luggage and cargo for less than the air carriers and i don't mind spending the few hours on the sea for less than half the price of a plane ticket. we laughed at chastnet for even conceiving the idea of ferries between the islands.

    • This should not just be a governmental initiative but also private or joint government/private.
