LIAT rolls out business plans to throw airline into the profit making line – 10th Dec 2012
Regional Carrier, LIAT, is rolling out a business plan as the new year approaches and it’s a plan that the top brass at the company believes will be able to throw the airline into the profit making line. The business plan includes new more efficient aircraft being added to the fleet and a broader focus by the carrier, to have more efficient schedules. LIAT CEO, Ian Brunton, is placing his bets on a brighter 2013 for the airline. The airline has been losing millions over the past 2 years. Its hoping for a turn around.
Brunton was speaking on Friday in Antigua at a press conference to unveil the plan to the regional press. LIAT will also be looking at a number of other routes and more flights are expected to be added to the schedule.
LIAT is owned by the Governments of Barbados, Antigua and St. Vincent along with other shareholders. The airline in the past has faced some turbulence but has been able to keep flying against other competing airlines.
On the Guyana front, the carrier has been operating pretty well with daily flights from Guyana to a number of Caribbean destinations. It is one of the longest serving regional airlines.
