LIAT announces limited service to hurricane battered countries

Barbados Today:-LIAT has announced limited operations to several of the hurricane battered countries, including Dominica and the British Virgin islands (BVI).

The airline said that it would continue limited operations until October 7 and that while it is unable “to carry commercial passengers to Dominica and St Maarten” it can carry limited passengers into the BVI.

But it said to enter Tortola, the “passenger must either be a resident of the British Virgin Islands, holder of a valid work permit or a property owner.

“Only persons with proof of residency, citizenship or authorization to enter will be allowed to connect,” the airline said, adding that passengers for those flights must also have a confirmed booking.

LIAT said that it would only carry relief material as cargo into these destinations and that no personal cargo is being accepted at the moment.

Dominica, St Maarten and the British Virgin islands were battered by hurricanes Irma and Maria when they made their way through the Lesser Antilles last month leaving a trail of death and destruction.

    If you start something Good God will honor it we need a plan for the islands that will temporarily relocate people and offer accommodation when there is a disaster . We need to work on the principle that even giving a little is better than hoping the big guns will come in and help out. Imagine the effect if the islands together could temporarily house 5000 displaced people and offer medical to 5000 more may seem like a little but it could ignite a revolution in thinking
