CBC – LIAT is threatening to cut air services to unprofitable destinations where governments are not supporting the airline.
Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Dr. Ralph Gonzalves has made this position clear at the end of a meeting of shareholder governments at the Barbados Hilton Hotel.
Dr. Gonzalves says LIAT is at a disadvantage when competing with the Trinidad based Caribbean airlines on the Port of Spain to Barbados and Antigua routes.
Meanwhile the shareholders of LIAT are moving urgently to replace the airline’s fleet of aircraft.
Dr. Gonzalves says the decision has been taken to acquire new planes.
He was speaking after a meeting of the shareholder governments attended by Barbados’ Prime Minister Freundel Stuart and his Antigua and Barbuda counterpart Gaston Browne.
Dr. Gonzalves says the shareholders are also seeking to resolve the industrial relations problems which the airline is facing.
