A Disappointed Gaston Accuses Colleagues of Trying to Bury LIAT

St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister Gaston Browne is making it clear that he is at odds with fellow heads of government who are shareholders in regional airline LIAT.

According to Browne, there are a couple of entities within the Caribbean countries and private sector individuals who have shown an interest to be part of a reorganized LIAT or be part of a LIAT 2020.

However, the Antigua leader is expressing disappointment that two of his colleagues are taking a different approach to the LIAT question.

Browne is against what he sees as an effort to preside over the demise of LIAT and to bury it.

He says he had been of the view that there was consensus about the liquidation and at the same time thinking of starting a new airline, but ended up being in the dark about what was being planned.

 

 

The Antiguan leader’s thought to be at odds on the LIAT issue with Prime Minister Mia Mottley of Barbados, and St Vincent’s Ralph Gonsalves.

Gaston Browne says he is not ready to abandon LIAT, while the other two are looking at other small airlines in the region that they feel could provide connectivity if necessary measures are taken to facilitate this.
