LIAT's CEO, David Evans has resigned just shy of two years on the job.
According to a report on www.antiguaobserver.com, a well placed source has confirmed that Evans called it quits after "a heated meeting with the board of directors last Thursday".
It stated further that the source did not disclose the agenda item from the fateful meeting nor the reasons for the head of the carrier’s departure.
Word of his exit comes just over a year after Antigua's Prime Minister Gaston Browne called for his resignation. Browne was adamant at that time that the CEO, who had been on the job for about a year, should tender his resignation after a plan emerged to collapse LIAT and form a new airline solely owned by Barbados.
LIAT's Head of Corporate Communications Desmond Browne says the airline will issue a statement in due course.
Dominica became a shareholder of the regional carrier in 2012 investing some $8 million into the airline.
Over the years, the cash-strapped airline has come under much pressure from the travelling public for the quality of service provided. Just last week passengers in Dominica were left stranded when the airline failed to arrive for its scheduled morning flight.
