FREDERIKSTED, St Croix, USVI- LIAT‘s commercial passenger services will remain suspended until July 15, 2020, due to the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the company has announced.

Chief Executive Officer Julie Reifer-Jones noted that while territories have begun to announce reopening dates, there are extended quarantine restrictions and protocols which are impacting the demand for travel.

The CEO said the airline’s management and board of directors will continue to monitor the situation and will review the decision in July as more information becomes available.

Booking automatically cancelled 

Passengers booked during the extended period of suspension will automatically have their bookings cancelled and will receive full airline credit for future travel. Passengers will be able to rebook as soon as the airline announces the resumption of passenger services, LIAT said.

Mrs. Reifer-Jones also advised that the airline was open to working with regional governments to repatriate citizens who were stranded across the region while its commercial services are suspended.

The airline acknowledged that while the extension was extremely difficult, it was necessary as the airline works toward a feasible restart.

      LIAT fat cats are not just collecting fat salaries. They were also collecting money for reservations all through June that they now supposedly credit back to customers after dumping them but it’s not possible to presently rebook, thus living up to their reputation of liars, idiots and thieves.

    Liat is bankrupt and is undergoing re organization. Bad for the region. Liat tickets will be worthless and credits will be worthless
