LIAT (Leeward Islands Air Transport) is an airline headquartered on the grounds of V. C. Bird International Airport in Antigua.
LIAT operates high-frequency inter-island scheduled services to a number destinations in the Caribbean. These destinations include Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, Tortola, St. Croix, Curacao, Antigua, Barbados, Trinidad, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Maarten, Anguilla, Guadeloupe, Domincia, Martinique, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Grenada and Trinidad.
LIAT Airlines provides service in the Eastern Caribbean region from Santo Domingo, Domincian Republic in the north to Georgetown and Guyana in the South.
The airline's main base is V.C. Bird International Airport, Antigua and Barbuda, with bases at Grantley Adams International Airport, Barbados and Piarco International Airport, Trinidad and Tobago. The airline is owned by seven Caribbean governments, with three being the major shareholders (73.4%).
LIAT Airlines has partnership alliance with Virgin Atlantic and JetBlue Airways, as well as former agreements with Carib Aviation and BWIA West Indies Airways.
LIAT Airlines' fleet consists of ATR 42-600, ATR 72-600 and Bombardier Dash 8-300. In January 2016, LIAT Airlines signed a bespoke charter agreement with Caribbean Helicopters, based in Antigua and Barbados, giving the airline the ability to provide LIAT with charter flights into specific markets in the region.
Passengers are also allowed one piece of cabin baggage at a maximum weight of 15 lbs or 7kgs. This policy is operated because of capacity limitations of the Dash 8 and ATR aircraft.
The free baggage allowance for all LIAT services is 1 piece at a maximum of 23 kgs per adult or child passenger.
Infants ticketed as part of an adult's itinerary do not qualify for this free baggage allowance.

LIAT reaches agreement with Caribbean Airlines
The Antigua-based regional airline, LIAT, says it has successfully concluded a commercial agreement with the state-owned Caribbean Airlines (CAL) to operate flights on the Trinidad and Tobago air bridge.
LIAT said that the agreement is as a result of the challenges on the passenger sea bridge between the islands and the increase in capacity needed by Caribbean Airlines which has been requested by the Trinidad and Tobago government.
“We are happy to enter into this agreement with Caribbean Airlines to assist them in providing this integral service,” said LIAT’s chief executive officer, Julie Reifer-Jones, adding that this type of cooperation is an important part of maintaining connectivity.
She said the ATR 72 aircraft, which will be used on the route, will be operated and maintained by LIAT.
Trinidad and Tobago is a shareholder of the cash-strapped LIAT, whose main shareholders are the governments of Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica and St. Vincent and the Grenadines
The Trinidad and Tobago government has recently acquired a vessel to operate on the sea-bridge amid growing complaints that the service between the two islands has declined significantly.
The new vessel is due in Port of Spain in April.
LIAT has not given any indication as to the duration of the agreement with CAL.

LIAT reinstating flights following industrial action
LIAT says it has recommenced flights and there are some changes in its schedule due to the industrial action which took place on Friday, November 10.
“LIAT is working to reinstate flights and passengers are reminded to check in two hours before scheduled departure,” the airline said in a statement.
Members of the Leeward Islands Airline Pilots Association (LIALPA) had taken strike action over what the airline said was the union’s disagreement with a company decision.
LIAT launched a direct service to Tortola from Barbados
The new service which will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in the current summer schedule between the two islands, seeks to link the northern and southern Caribbean islands and offer more flexibility and easy transfers. LIAT flight 300 departs at 12:10pm and arrives in Beef Island, Tortola at 2:25pm.
The return service, flight LI301 departs at 2:55pm arriving in Barbados at 5:05pm.
LIAT said farewell to the last of its DHC8 aircraft in the culmination of its re-fleeting program which commenced three years ago
This re-fleeting exercise saw the departure of 18 DHC which started operations approximately 25 years ago and welcomed 9 ultra-modern, comfortable, stylish and efficient ATR42-600 & ATR62-600 aircraft. LIAT provides service in the Eastern Caribbean region from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic in the north to Georgetown, Guyana in the south, linking the chain of islands.
LIAT launched a new service from Barbados to Trinidad
Starting January 18, LIAT will fly nonstop daily from the Grantley Adams International Airport to Piarco International Airport. The flight will depart Barbados at 13:00 and arrive in Trinidad at 14:00. The return flight will leave Trinidad at 14:30 and arrive in Barbados at 15:30.
LIAT launched a new service from Antigua to San Juan which will be operated every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, departing at 20:25 and arriving back in Antigua just after midnight the following day. This new flight will allow Antiguan customers to take LIAT’s morning flight to San Juan, enjoy a full day in Puerto Rico for shopping or business and take advantage of a same day return flight back to Antigua.
LIAT announced that it was operating an additional flight to and from Dominica to coincide with the Christmas and New Year holidays. The new flight will operate between Antigua and Dominica daily starting Wednesday December 23. LI 321 will depart Antigua at 17:00 and arrive in Dominica at 17:40; while the return service, LI 322 will depart Dominica at 18:05 for arrival into Antigua at 18:45.
LIAT announced that it had not renewed a partnership agreement with Caribbean Helicopters. In January 2016, LIAT Airlines had signed a bespoke charter agreement with Caribbean Helicopters wherein the latter carrier would operate charter flights into thin Caribbean markets on LIAT's behalf using its fleet of Piper and Britten-Norman Islander aircraft. LIAT Airlines had hinted that the route wasn't profitable.
The Government of Barbados is urging more Caribbean countries to consider investing in Leeward Islands Air Transport. LIAT is supported by four shareholder goverments: Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica and St. Vincent and the Grenadines. LIAT currently has 10 aircraft servicing 18 countries with some 700 flights per week.
