He added that “our loyal and dedicated staff have built an airline that, after 59 years, is still committed to the region; an airline that focuses on providing convenient air transport connections to the countries we serve.”
LIAT operates more than 500 flights per week across the Caribbean.
The company currently offers daily flights from Guyana’s Ogle International Airport to Trinidad and Barbados with onward connections.
