- Promoting hand washing and healthy hygiene among employees and passengers and ensuing that alcohol-based sanitising wipes are available for passenger use.
- Taking measures that follow the recommendations of regional and global health authorities.
- Activating a special Project Team to monitor this situation in real time.

“We remain committed to the safety of our passengers and employees as we work to connect our region. We will share any changes made to travel restrictions, our schedule and cancellation policies in a timely manner,” LIAT added. (PR/SAT)
