St John’s, Antigua — A number of new services and non-stop routes that have been added to the summer schedule of regional carrier LIAT will come into effect on July 15 and 16.
From Antigua, customers will now enjoy a new daily service to San Juan each evening. This is in addition to the existing morning service from Antigua to San Juan, via Dominica, which operates daily.
Meantime, flight number LI 581 from Antigua to Dominica and on to Barbados has been upgraded to a daily service, and has been retimed to leave Antigua in the early morning.
In anticipation of an increase in the number of people travelling during the summer peak period, customers are reminded that they should arrive at the airport to check-in at least two hours prior to their scheduled time of departure and that check-in closes 45 minutes before the plane departs.
In order to make flying as easy as possible, passengers should adhere to LIAT’s baggage limits. The free baggage allowance for all LIAT services is one piece at a maximum of 50 lbs or 23 kgs. In addition, passengers are allowed one piece of cabin baggage at a maximum weight of 15 lbs or 7 kgs.
Passengers should note that extra pieces of baggage (that is, pieces in excess of the above allowance) will be subject to excess baggage charges and will only be accepted on a space available (stand-by) basis.
LIAT operates a modern fleet of ATR 42 and ATR 72 aircraft across a regional network of 17 destinations. It is owned by regional shareholders, with the majority being the governments of Barbados, Antigua and Barbuda and St Vincent and the Grenadines.
