Following a seven-month absence, LIAT, the Caribbean airline operated its first flight on Sunday from the VC Bird International Airport in Antigua to Dominica.
LIAT will operate a limited schedule of flights when it launches its commercial schedule later this month, which will return connectivity to its network which was impacted by the shutdown.
The airline is currently completing all the training and regulatory requirements for the territories it will be flying to.
Several new procedures will be implemented to ensure the safety of passengers as well as reduce the risk of transmission of covid.
The airline was forced to suspend services in April 2020 due to the impact of the covid-19 pandemic.
LIAT is being restructured to improve its viability and sustainability following a decision by the government of Antigua and Barbuda to reorganize the airline.
