Leeward Islands Air Transport

 

As this is the 50th anniversary of the Antigua Sailing week we will fly a couple of the routes of LIAT, or Leeward Islands Air Transport, in the Caribbean.

 

LIAT were founded in 1956 in Antigua and are currently owned by owned by seven Caribbean governments.

 

The flights below came from the May 70 timetable from www.timetableimages.com .

 

These routes were flown using de Havilland Herons and Britten-Norman Islanders and Trislanders. Later the airline used Hawker Siddeley HS748, de Havilland DHC-6 Twin Otter, DHC-8 and ATR 42/72 aircraft.

For a brief period in the 70s they did operate jet aircraft the BAC 111 500 series which were supplied by the Court Line when they owned part of the airline. Apart from that interlude they have always operated propeller aircraft.
