About LIAT

LIAT (Leeward Islands Air Transport) is an airline headquartered on the grounds of V. C. Bird International Airport in Antigua, with a base at Grantley Adams International Airport, Barbados. LIAT operates high-frequency inter-island scheduled services to a number of destinations in the Caribbean.

The airline was founded in 1956, beginning flights soon after between Antigua and Montserrat. Within the subsequent 10 years, the airline gained new shareholders, meaning it was able to expand its routes around the Caribbean with new aircraft types. In 2007, LIAT announced a merge with Caribbean Star Airlines, combining their schedule and flying under the LIAT brand.

The airline is owned by seven Caribbean governments, with the major shareholders being Barbados, Antigua & Barbuda and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.


Destinations

Before entering administration and suspending operations, LIAT operated scheduled flights to the following destinations in the Caribbean and also in South America. Previously the destinations of LIAT have included Curaçao, Venezuela, Saint Croix (US Virgin Islands) and Kingstown and Charlestown (Saint Vincent and the Grenadines).

As of November 2020, the airline is restarting, but will be operating a reduced network. The following is a list of destinations that the airline flew to when it was at full capacity.
