New closing time for airport
ST. JOHN’S, Antigua, Feb. 27 – Regional airline LIAT announced Friday that it had cancelled its daily flight (LI 558) to/from Guadeloupe because of the on-going civil unrest on the French Caribbean Island and the resulting early closure of the main airport each day.
“The flight which is scheduled to depart Guadeloupe at 6:00PM for Antigua has been cancelled with immediate effect,” Corporate Communications Manager Desmond Brown said.

“I would like to point out that we have not dropped the island from our list of destinations and we continue to operate flight 321 which leaves Antigua at 10:00AM four days weekly for Guadeloupe, via Dominica. This allows for passengers to get to and from Guadeloupe on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays,” Brown added.
Flight 558 was a daily service that operated from Dominica to Antigua via Guadeloupe. Brown said that the Guadeloupe Airports Authority recently advised carriers that the new closing time for the airport was 6:00PM each day.
