PM Roosevelt Skerrit urging cash strapped regional airline LIAT to improve its service to passengers
PM Roosevelt Skerrit is urging cash strapped regional airline LIAT to improve its service to passengers.
The PM was commenting on the decision by St Vincent and the Grenadines government not to pump additional funds into the airline until it improves its service to the island.
The main shareholder governments of the Antigua based airline are Antigua & Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica and St Vincent & the Grenadines.
Last week St Vincent and the Grenadines PM, Dr Ralph Gonsalves, held talks with the LIAT Management team headed by the Acting CEO Julie Reffer Jones, two weeks after his administration wrote the airline demanding talks over what it described as poor service.
The talks in Kingston last Wednesday were aimed at resolving LIAT's deteriorating service experienced by Vincentians and in a statement afterwards, Gonsalves outlined a number of challenges; including the lack of information and delays and cancellation of flights to the travelling public.
In adding his views to the matter PM Skerrit says there must be a greater sense of humanism in the way the airline conducts its operations.
