Thursday, July 12 2012
REGIONAL airline LIAT launched its 2012 summer schedule on Wednesday July 4 affording Car-ibbean travellers an extensive network to connect throughout its 21 destinations.
“This summer, LIAT is extremely happy to announce several new routes being offered providing more travel options to the regional market.
“We continue to add more efficient and effective ways of connecting the region and its people,” Manager Schedule Planning, Mr. Dale Stoute said adding that “this summer will be a very interesting and exciting one for the company.”
The ten-week schedule, which runs until September 11, will offer a daily service into and out of Martinique connecting passengers to Antigua and other destinations in the north.
A daily flight will also be introduced from St Kitts to San Juan, Puerto Rico through St Maarten, departing St Kitts at 6:45am and arriving in San Juan at 9:30am. Passengers travelling from San Juan to St Kitts will have two options, departing in the morning at 10:40am and 3:05pm daily.
Two daily San Juan flights from Tortola (British Virgin Islands) were also reintroduced offering morning and evening departures.
Meanwhile, customers originating or connecting in Antigua now have an additional flight to San Juan with the introduction of a 6:45am flight from the V.C. Bird International Airport and arriving in San Juan at 9:40am with the return flight departing at 8:35pm.
Stoute also noted that the addition of these services during the summer were expected to benefit passengers travelling to San Juan for shopping and other services as well as passengers connecting on other airlines through the San Juan hub.
