The agreement officially ended on Saturday.
“As we continue to pursue our relentless pursuit of operational efficiency and profitability, both us and our partner, Caribbean Helicopters, have decided not to extend the arrangement,” stated LIAT’s Chief Commercial Officer, Lloyd Carswell.
Airline officials have noted that in 2017, “some route rationalization is likely to continue” but they will continue to explore the best possible ways to improve the carriers bottom line.
“LIAT is honoured to have been able to assist the islands of Anguilla and Nevis in the augmentation of their airlift for 2016, and we would like to take this opportunity to wish them the very best in the development of their tourism product for the future,” the airline noted in a release on the weekend.
