ST. JOHN'S, Antigua, July 10, 2015 – A number of new services and non-stop routes which have been added to the summer schedule of LIAT, The Caribbean Airline, 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.

The new non-stop services are as follows:

  • Barbados to St. Kitts every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Flights will leave at midday and return in the early afternoon

· Barbados to St. Maarten and back every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday. This flight departs at midday and returns to Barbados in the early afternoon

· Trinidad to Barbados every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Flights depart Trinidad at 10.50 am, arriving in Barbados at 11.50 am

· Trinidad to Ogle, Guyana every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Flights depart Trinidad at 7.50 pm, arriving in Guyana at 8.50 pm.

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.
