After announcing, in October, that it will resume flight services to St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, later this year, LIAT has confirmed its resumption date.
The airline says that Sunday, November 21, will see its inaugural flight to the island, its 10th destination since service was re-started last November. The carrier will operate a weekly service into the Cyril E. King International Airport every Sunday.
Officials say that LI 360 will depart V.C. Bird International at 12:45 p.m. and arrive in St. Thomas an hour later, at 1:45 p.m. The return leg will leave St. Thomas at 2:45 p.m. and arrive in Antigua at 3:45 p.m. Tickets go on sale from today, November 9.
In the meantime, LIAT says it will also operate three special flights to connect to St. Croix for the Christmas season. The return flights from Antigua to St. Croix will operate on December 4, December 18 and December 31.
The airline also hopes to resume flights to Guyana soon. However, that country’s government reportedly is withholding permission until the carrier can prove that its service is more reliable now.
The Guyana Government reportedly says it does not want to have its people stranded due to unreliable service by the airline.
