LIAT operate relief flights to Dominica

Regional carrier LIAT continued its relief efforts Saturday with a flight into the Douglas Charles Airport.

The relief flight not only brought in supplies to the north of the island but also took in members of the Antigua and Barbuda Defence Force and the Antigua and Barbuda Fire Service.

It also carried in officials from the Eastern Caribbean Civil Aviation Authority (ECCAA) who were able to do assessments of the airport facilities.

LIAT said the flight formed part of its commitment to assist affected islands in the region.

The airline is currently working on a schedule to aid in delivering relief supplies as well as allowing passengers and persons from Dominica to fly out to other destinations.

LIAT has been working along with several organizations to assist in the relief efforts to islands affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

    Well done! I know that a C-130 heavy transport also safely landed there yesterday. Only problem is roads ex D.C. to Portsmouth, as well as to Roseau, via Queens H/way, are still blocked…presumably urgent work would be simultaneously going on to clear both. Almost unbelievable distribution tasks ahead, even with some helicopter assets ex Martinique on ground already.

    One piece of equiptment urgently needed would be a wood shredder. Wood shredders are urgently needed for niniturising the vast quantity of debry across the island’s by-ways and high-ways.
