LIAT Takes Delivery Of 10th ATR

ST JOHN’S, Antigua  –  LIAT has added a new 68-seater ATR aircraft to its existing fleet of nine.

The new plane landed at the VC Bird International Airport on Friday and was greeted by an exuberant ground crew and numerous officials including the Minister of Aviation, Sir Robin Yearwood.

Captain Phil Gunsam and co-pilot Rawle Francis executed a low altitude, low speed fly-by over the runway demonstrating the manoeuvreability of the new aircraft.

Once it landed it was given a water hose salute by two of the airport’s new fire engines.

Sir Robin thanked the crew and those present and noted the importance of developing air travel for the people of the Caribbean.
