No LIAT, no problem

If LIAT pulls out of Trinidad and Tobago, Caribbean Airlines will pick up the slack.

That’s according to Finance Minister Colm Imbert who says this country pulled out of LIAT’s affairs a long time ago.

The statement comes as the cash-strapped regional airline moves to restructure its operations amid increasing financial burdens.

LIAT is seeking US$5.4 million to help it stay airborne.

During a press conference Friday, Minister Imbert criticized the media for what he said was scandalous reporting on the LIAT situation.
