LIAT?yesterday?announced that one of its new planes was flying again after a number of aircraft were grounded last week, leaving LIAT?counters across the region in chaos with angry, stranded passengers.
A Press release from the Caribbean carrier said that the service was expected to improve significantly because of this.
“LIAT announced its service was boosted by the return to service of one of its two newly acquired ATR aircraft which was grounded in Barbados for about a week due to a technical issue that has now been resolved.
“Nothing is more important to us than the security and safety of our passengers,” said Ian Brunton, LIAT’s chief executive officer (CEO).
“Unfortunately, in the aviation business aircraft, both old and new, experience technical issues from time to time, but safety is our major concern and we apologise that our passengers were inconvenienced, especially during the peak summer season,” Brunton added. (PR/MB)
