Tropical Storm Danny could force flight cancellations, LIAT warns passengers


LIATSt. JOHN’S, Antigua – Regional airline LIAT is putting passengers on early notice that Tropical Storm Danny could affect their travel plans this weekend and into next week.

The carrier said that due to the storm’s impending passage, it could be forced to cancel certain flights on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. It did not say which flights were likely to be affected.

Tropical Storm Danny is forecast to pass the Eastern Caribbean on Monday after first developing into a hurricane over the weekend, and losing strength to become a storm as it reaches the region.

“Customers affected by the disruptions who wish to re-book for a later date will be allowed to do so without change fees or fare differences for a period of two weeks from the date of their original scheduled travel,” LIAT said in an advisory issued yesterday evening, adding that after that two-week grace period, passengers would be required to pay applicable fare and change fees when re-booking.

“LIAT also wishes to advise that passengers who decide to travel but are unable to complete their journey due to disruption caused by weather conditions, will not be provided with meals, transportation, hotel accommodation, etc. Passengers with onward connections are advised to contact the respective carriers.”

The Antigua-based airline further advised passengers booked for travel on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday to contact its call centre for information about the status of their flights.
