LIAT cancels several flights
(Barbados Nation) – The financially strapped regional airline, LIAT, Thursday, announced the cancellation on several flights due to what it termed “operational reasons”.
The airline did not elaborate on the “operational reasons” but in the past had warned several regional destinations that they had until March 15, to respond to the airline’s minimal revenue guarantee (MRG) proposals.
Under and MRG model, it is likely that a few flights may be cut if the government is not prepared to fund them with a guarantee with St Vincent and the Grenadines Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves indicating that theoretically, several countries have no quarrel with the MRG.
The airline said that it was cancelling flights LI 374 from Barbados to St Lucia; LI 375 from St Lucia to Barbados; LI 337 from Barbados to Grenada; LI 338 from Grenada to Barbados; LI 769 from Barbados to St Vincent and LI 770 from St Vincent to Barbados.
