Regional airline, LIAT, is blaming a number of utility service providers for technical failures that have been "negatively impacting its operations".

LIAT said that it has been experiencing some difficulties in its communication network, as a direct result of the technical failures at the utility companies.

The airline listed three recent developments which it said had significantly affected its operations and on-time performance including fluctuation in the power supply at one company that is "causing severe damage to one of LIAT's uninterruptible power supply systems.

"This caused LIAT's main servers to fail," the airline said in a statement, adding that in a number of instances its check-in operations and city offices were affected by the technical failures "and this, in turn, negatively impacted the processing of passengers".

The airline said it would continue to work with the utility providers to rectify the problems.
