[www.inewsguyana.com] – LIAT in an advisory to its passengers on Tuesday, November 5 noted that as a result of action taken by its airline pilots’ trade union (LIALPA), pilots who were scheduled to fly this morning have not reported for duty.
The company also said that it has not been provided with the required notification of industrial action as required under its agreement with the pilots.
As a result of the action, some of the company’s morning flights have been disrupted which is likely to affect service for the remainder of the day.
LIAT said customers affected by the disruptions who wish to re-book will be allowed to do so without charge for a period of one week from the date of their originally scheduled travel.
Following the one-week grace period, passengers will be required to pay applicable fare and change fees when re-booking.
The advisory added that passengers who are unable to travel as planned due to the work stoppage, will be issued a full credit for future travel at their request. Terms and conditions apply.
When services resume, affected passengers are advised to contact LIAT Reservations to re-book before proceeding to the airport.
LIAT also advises that passengers who decide to travel but are unable to complete their journey due to the disruption, will not be provided with meals, transportation and hotel accommodation.
The airline says it sincerely apologizes to affected passengers and the general public for any inconvenience caused as a result of the action by its pilots.
