No hike in LIAT prices
Regional airline LIAT has no intention of raising its prices now that low-cost airline REDjet has discontinued its services across the Caribbean.
That’s the word from the airline’s corporate communications manager Desmond Brown, after some concern had been raised by regional air travellers that prices would return to the higher levels seen before REDjet entered the market last May.
“We have no intention of seeking to take advantage of the suspension of the services of REDjet to alter fares in a manner that would result in any unnecessary increase in ticket prices,” Brown told the WEEKEND NATION yesterday.
He noted that since REDjet suspended its operations at midnight on March 16 there have been no increased fares offered by LIAT.
“In fact, to the contrary, LIAT has intensified its campaign to provide discounted seats for regional travel, beginning with a series of special fares offered to distressed REDjet passengers,” Brown added.
