LIAT fires two Pilots



LIAT[] – Chief Executive Officer of regional airline LIAT, David Evans, has confirmed that the company recently terminated two pilots charged with blatantly disregarding instructions from the company’s Flight Operations Department and flying an aircraft to VC Bird International Airport in Antigua just hours before the recent passage of tropical storm Gonzalo.

This decision to terminate followed a full internal investigation of the incident during which the pilots were represented, Evans said in release Monday morning.

The Leeward Islands Airline Pilots Association (LIALPA) has repeatedly called for LIAT’s management to take action against indiscipline and we are doing just that, Evans added in the release.

The company is committed to improving its service delivery to the public and will continue to take appropriate action as required from time to time, the release said. [Jamaica Observer]
