LIAT struggles to resume normal operations
The management of LIAT and the Leeward Islands Airline Pilots Association (LIALPA) have in Antigua to discuss issues relating to the recent industrial action by the pilots which left passengers in Guyana and across the Caribbean stranded. The airline said the meeting was conducted in a cordial atmosphere.
The two parties are still to determine the way forward. The company’s management acknowledged that there are legitimate concerns on the part of the pilots and it was agreed that both sides would continue discussions in an effort to address the issues.
LIAT said it continues to seek to restore normal operations, and efforts to get dislocated passengers to their various destinations as quickly as possible are ongoing.
