LIAT and Grantley Adams International Airport (GAIA) are investigating the alarm raised after a passenger, who is reportedly HIV positive, was injured on an aircraft.

Initial reports suggested that the blood of the passenger might have been splashed on other passengers, but LIAT is saying that was not the case and neither was blood in any of the aircraft’s seats.

“Of all the reports we received there is no evidence of any passenger being splashed with blood,” said LIAT’s head of communications, Desmond Brown. “The passenger was accepted on the basis of a fit-to-fly certificate from the passenger’s doctor in St Lucia.

“On deplaning in Barbados the passenger in question suffered a foot injury. Paramedics were called in and the wound was cleaned and dressed.” (AC)
