LIAT airline to cut routes

Published:Friday | March 7, 2014 | 1:09 PM

Regional airline, LIAT, says it will take decisive action to deal with unprofitable routes it seeks to make its operations financially variable.



LIAT chairman Jean Holder says he has been trying to persuade people to invest and has met with a number of governments and Prime Ministers.



However, he says the Antigua-based airline has reached the point where it needs to cut routes.



He says LIAT said it would employ an expert to assess the unprofitable routes which would not only entail cutting, but rescheduling or reviewing them.



In October 2012, then chief executive officer of LIAT, Ian Brunton, had warned that the cash-strapped airline would soon be dropping at least eight routes deemed to be consistently unprofitable.
