St Lucia — St Lucia’s tourism minister Alan Chastanet has requested a meeting of regional tourism ministers to discuss problems facing the regional airline, LIAT and civil aviation generally in the Eastern Caribbean.

The Jamaica Gleaner reported that Chastanet said one of the important matters he hopes to raise at the meeting is the situation with LIAT, after the company said it would most likely register a deficit of US$5.5 million on its operations last year.

Last week, LIAT officials said that the airline also recorded a decline in passenger load. Chastanet said the bottom line for St Lucia and most Caribbean states is the fact that they are losing intra-regional travellers.

Caribbean Airlines has announced plans to extend its services into more Eastern Caribbean states.
