LIAT suspends services due to volcanic activity

LIAT has suspended all flights in the southern part of its network as of Friday, April 9, 2021, due to the volcanic activity in St Vincent.

The suspension, which affects all flights south of Dominica, has been caused by the explosive eruption of the La Soufriere volcano in St Vincent, a press release from the airline today, Sunday, April 11, 2021, stated.

“This eruption has spewed large ash clouds into the atmosphere and forced the closure of airports and airspace in the vicinity.”

Flight cancellations


LIAT said it has cancelled flights to/from Barbados, St Lucia, St Vincent and Grenada for April 10, 11 and 12, 2021, until further notice.

Passengers are asked to monitor their e-mails for updates, while passengers wishing to reschedule are asked to contact our Reservations Call Centre for assistance.
