LIAT Suspends Services Due to Volcanic Activity

LIAT at Argyle International Airport

Press Release 
St. John’s, Antigua
9 April 2021 

LIAT has suspended all flights in the southern part of its network as of Friday, 9 April 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. This eruption has spewed large ash clouds into the atmosphere and forced the closure of airports and airspace in the vicinity. 

LIAT has cancelled the following flights for Friday 9th April 2021, and until further notice: 

LI 392 from Dominica to Barbados 
LI 392 from Barbados to St. Vincent 
LI 393 from St. Vincent to St. Lucia 
LI 393 from St. Lucia to Antigua 

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

The airline will be working with authorities to assist in relief and evacuation efforts into St. Vincent as soon as possible. 

LIAT will issue further updates and advisories via its website ( and social media platforms. 

The management and staff of LIAT wish to extend our prayers and sincere wishes to the people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines at this challenging time.
