St Lucians stranded after LIAT folds

LIAT’S DEMISE has left at least ten St Lucians, who are stranded in Barbados, fearful that they may not get home anytime soon.

That’s because they had been banking that the cash-strapped regional carrier would pull through the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

However, it was confirmed LIAT’S days were numbered and they would have to pay out millions in severance to hundreds of employees.

Catherine Sealys said she came to Barbados earlier this year to buy items after her home was destroyed by fire.

She said she booked a two-way ticket on LIAT and was scheduled to leave in May.
