ST. JOHN’S, Antigua:— LIAT will begin limited flight operations into the destinations of St. Maarten and Tortola, the British Virgin Islands which were severely affected by the passage of Hurricane Irma. The Princess Juliana International Airport in St. Maarten and the Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport in Tortola suffered extensive damage and at this time are closed to commercial operations.
The relief flights, which will commence on Thursday 14th September, will see LIAT only transporting passengers out of these destinations. We will not carry any commercial passengers into these destinations. This is in accordance with the conditions established by the authorities in St. Maarten and the BVI that prohibits the entry of commercial passengers. LIAT will continue to assist the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency in moving personnel and relief supplies into the affected area.
