ST JOHN’S, Antigua – LIAT has suspended all flights in the southern part of its network as of Friday, April 9, 2021, due to the volcanic activity in St Vincent.

The suspension, which affects all flights south of Dominica, has been caused by the explosive eruption of the La Soufriere volcano in St Vincent, a press release from the airline today, Sunday, April 11, 2021, stated.

“This eruption has spewed large ash clouds into the atmosphere and forced the closure of airports and airspace in the vicinity.”

Flight cancellations

LIAT said it has cancelled flights to/from Barbados, St Lucia, St Vincent and Grenada for April 10, 11 and 12, 2021, until further notice.

Passengers are asked to monitor their e-mails for updates, while passengers wishing to reschedule are asked to contact our Reservations Call Centre for assistance.

Relief & evacuation efforts

The airline also said it will be working with authorities to assist in relief and evacuation efforts into St Vincent as soon as possible.

“LIAT will issue further updates and advisories via its website (www.liat.com) and social media platforms.

“The management and staff of LIAT wish to extend our prayers and sincere wishes to the people of St Vincent & the Grenadines at this challenging time,” the press release stated.

    To my Vincentian people at home and in the Diaspora, let us all come together and reach out to our people in the Red Zone.
    St.Vincent is still Hairouna no matter what befalls us.
    To all the critics out there " if the Good Lord loves you, remember that God love St.Vincent too.
