It seems 2016 is off to a flying start – already there are many exciting things happening at LIAT and in the Caribbean as a whole.
Firstly, we are very excited about our recent agreement with Caribbean Helicopters, which will see them operating flights for us into selected markets such as Anguilla and Nevis. Take a look at liat.com to learn more about exploring Nevis – it’s been quite some time since we have flown to this vibrant island.
Barbados, LIAT’s largest shareholder, and Guyana, our southernmost destination, are both celebrating 50 years of independence in 2016. Both have many activities planned throughout the year, which makes now a great time to start planning a trip.
LIAT will be celebrating its own big birthday, too. We are extremely proud to be marking our 60th anniversary this year – a significant milestone that few companies achieve. To all our employees, customers, stakeholders and friends: I thank you for your continued commitment. We hope to be able to share our 60th celebrations with you at one of the events we have planned throughout the year.
For now, flip through the stories of this issue to find out about the St Lucia Jazz Festival, which celebrates its 25th anniversary; to delve into Puerto Rico’s Comic Con; to enjoy the fun of sailing and regattas; and lots more.
Most of all, stay sunny, stay smiling and, as always, live life to the full.
