SAN JUAN – A strike by air traffic controllers on Thursday forced the shutdown of Grantley Adams International Airport in Barbados, regional airline LIAT said in a statement.
The Antigua-based airline said all flights from and to Barbados have been delayed due to the strike, which is in solidarity with Barbados Water Authority workers who are fighting for a raise.
LIAT said passengers “who decide to travel but are unable to complete their journey will not be provided with meals, transportation or hotel accommodation as the situation is beyond LIAT’s control.”
Passengers with onward connections are advised to contact the respective carriers.
LIAT, which offers daily travel to more than 21 cities in the Caribbean, is jointly owned by the governments of Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
