Prime Minister Gaston Browne of Antigua and Barbuda recently shared updates on the progress of LIAT 2020, highlighting significant developments and investments made towards the airline’s operations.

During a recent statement, Prime Minister Browne stated, “My understanding is that they’ve approved the aircraft. They’re now looking at the internal operation manuals, and those should be approved hopefully within the upcoming days.”

He further disclosed that the government of Antigua and Barbuda has allocated $33 million in escrow to purchase three aircraft from the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB).

These funds have been remitted to the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) for the purchase.

The Prime Minister emphasized the financial commitment, stating, “The funds to purchase three aircraft are in escrow, $33 million. We will have to spend another $27 million to get those planes up to scratch.”

He expressed optimism about the timeline, indicating that LIAT 2020 is expected to have at least two aircraft operational by next weekend, with a third one following later in the month. This would enable the airline to commence operations and provide connectivity for Caribbean people.

Reflecting on the journey and challenges faced, Prime Minister Browne remarked, “We stood alone with LIAT for the last four years, and the fact now that we are close to literally launching LIAT 2020, I’m very pleased with the progress that we have made.”

He acknowledged the resilience and foresight required to navigate through challenges and ensure the project’s success, terming it as a project of resilience for the nation.

Regarding previous opposition and skepticism, especially in salvaging LIAT, the Prime Minister expressed understanding and indicated a need for collaboration and cooperation to provide essential air connectivity for the region.

He expressed hope that stakeholders would recognize the importance of investing in LIAT 2020 to support the region’s transportation needs.
