Caribbean regional airline LIAT has extended its the suspension of its passenger services through the end of May. 

The airline said it was continuing its flight pause through May 31, citing “the current border closures and travel restrictions within the regional network.”

“While there are ongoing discussions about the reopening of borders, no firm date has been set to facilitate regional travel as yet,” said LIAT Chief Executive Officer Julie Reifer-Jones. 

The CEO said passengers who had tickets during the extended suspension period would automatically “have their bookings canceled and would receive full credit for future travel.”

“We have been working with our stakeholders to develop a plan for resuming flights when this is possible,” she said. 

Like its major airline counterparts, LIAT is also launching new cleaning protocols “to ensure the health and safety of its passengers and staff,” she said.
