Air traffic controllers strike shuts down Barbados airport
BRIDGETOWN, Barbados — Flights to and from Barbados on Thursday were delayed or cancelled due to the closure of the Grantley Adams International Airport as a result of strike action by air traffic controllers. Regional carrier LIAT said that 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 the airline’s control.
Passengers with onward connections were advised to contact the respective carriers.
Affected customers who wish to re-book for a later date will be allowed to do so without change fees or fare differences for a period of two weeks from the date of their original scheduled travel. Following the two-week grace period, passengers will be required to pay applicable fare and change fees when re-booking.
