Airline to rival Liat proposed
THERE IS TURBULENCE in regional aviation and it is leading to a rough ride between Barbados and Antigua and Barbuda.
The upheaval last night was all about the struggling regional airline LIAT.
Leaked documents have indicated that a proposed new rival airline based in Barbados might be set up to replace the inter-island carrier.
Antigua’s Prime Minister Gaston Browne has reacted angrily to the reported plan, while his Vincentian colleague Dr Ralph Gonsalves warned against making rash comments about the airline, saying such could undermine confidence in the business operations of the regional airline.
Last night, Barbados’ Minister of Civil Aviation Richard Sealy declined to comment on the situation suggesting it was a matter at the level of prime ministers. (ES/CMC)
