St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Antigua and Barbuda’s Prime Minister Gaston Brown is confirming that a meeting is planned for Monday with Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley and St. Vincent and the Grenadines Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves, the majority shareholders of regional airline LIAT to discuss the future air travel in the region.
He also intimated that Barbados had been given the proxy to administer Trinidad and Tobago’s shares in LIAT, giving the country a single majority interest.
Mr. Brown said it seemed that his colleagues have already made up their minds about the future of the airline even though they have agreed to meet.
The Prime Minister said that should talks fail, Antigua and Barbuda would “move immediately to take defensive action to protect LIAT from any brutish aggression to destroy it”.
The Antigua and Barbuda government on Saturday published its re-organization plan for LIAT, describing the airline as a public good.
