LIAT slapped with notice of penalty following November incident
ST. JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC) – The cash-strapped regional airline, LIAT, said Friday it would hold talks with the Eastern Caribbean Civil Aviation Authority (ECCAA) after it had been slapped with a notice of penalty in connection with an incident that occurred on November 2, last year.
LIAT gave no details regarding the incident, but said it was reviewing the findings with its advisors and would engage ECCAA in discussions.
“LIAT is committed to a fair resolution of the matter based on full and frank disclosure by all parties. The safety and security of our passengers remains LIAT’s top priority and LIAT continues to operate in full and strict compliance with the Civil Aviation Regulations and its operating procedures and manuals.”
The airline said that these matters remain under review by LIAT and discussion with ECCAA, noting “it would therefore be inappropriate to make further public comment at this time”.
