Antigua & Barbuda PM Gaston Browne says shareholder governments need to do what is necessary in order to save the financially strapped regional airline, LIAT, amid speculation that there could be budget cuts at the Antigua based company.
Browne, who is in St Kitts attending the 30th intercessional meeting of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) did not confirm that the airline is about to implement the cost cutting measure as had been speculated by the Leeward Islands Air Pilot Association (LIAPA).
He said, "Whatever is necessary to save LIAT will be quintessential for all stakeholders to cooperate. It does not matter the sacrifice that is required, we all have to make sure that we play a role to keep LIAT in the air."
