St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): St. Kitts-Nevis is among seven destinations included in LIAT flights set to resume at the end of the month (November 30).
Flights will operate five days a week from Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, St. Lucia, St. Kitts-Nevis, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
The airline says it has completed all the training and regulatory requirements for its November 30 return to the Caribbean skies and has implemented new procedures to ensure travel safety and COVID-19 compliance for all staff and passengers.
These include the mandatory wearing of masks at check-in and onboard, enhancements to its cleaning and sanitization protocols, and new boarding procedures.
LIAT is expected to announce other destinations for its December schedule.
After news of LIAT’s possible liquidation announced in June 2020 by Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister Gaston Browne, amidst the already existing strain on travel as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, people in the region began to wonder whether the Caribbean Airline would return or another carrier would pick up the slack.
On Sunday (November 1), LIAT signaled its intention to continue its role as an “air bridge” for the region when it made a symbolic flight from Antigua and Barbuda to Dominica, its first flight since being grounded in March 2020.
