Leeward Islands Air Transport or LIAT was established in Oct-1956 on the island of Montserrat. The carrier provides high-frequency ‘island hopping’ services across the Caribbean. LIAT is based at VC Bird International Airport, Antigua, with an additional hub at Bridgetown Grantley Adams International Airport. The carrier provides scheduled and charter services, with average sector lengths of approximately 30 minutes. LIAT is majority-owned by 11 Caribbean governments, the largest shareholders being the Governments of Barbados, Antigua & Barbuda and St. Vincent & the Grenadines. The carrier underwent partial privatisation in 1995. Caribbean Star Airlines merged with the carrier in Oct-2007. LIAT operate a fleet of regional turboprop aircraft.
