Regional air carrier LIAT has added a series of new routes for the summer season, the company announced this week.

“From Antigua, customers will now be able to connect with a new daily service from Tortola to San Juan each evening,” said LIAT CEO David Evans. “This is in addition to the existing morning service from Antigua to San Juan, via Dominica which operates daily.”

The new routes include nonstop flights between Barbados and St Kitts every Monday, Wednesday and Friday; Barbados to St Maarten and back every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday, among others.

There will also be new flights between Barbados and Trinidad on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

The latter flights will operate from Barbados to Trinidad via Guyana in the morning, and in the evening, the flights operate nonstop from Barbados to Trinidad and on to Guyana before returning to Barbados.

The company also announced that it had taken delivery of its ninth ATR aircraft.

“The introduction of more non-stop services means quicker flight times to some of the key markets,” Evans said.

The new services and nonstop routes will launch July 15 and 16, although they are already on sale.
