LIAT Chief Commercial Officer Lloyd Carswell Reportedly Hands In Resignation

According to media reports, the Chief Commercial Officer for LIAT is parting his way with the airline. Lloyd Carswell, who was a top official at the regional carrier, served LIAT for four years. The news of his departure was shared via a media report out of Antigua and Barbuda. As for the transport company, they have yet to make a statement regarding Carswell’s depature.

According to a source who shared details with the Antigua News Room, Carswell became unhappy with the company’s operations. It was also said that he had a tense work relationship with the Acting Chief Executive Officer Juliet Reifer-Jones. At the time of Caswell’s resignation, the Leeward Islands Air Transport (LIAT) was at the height of threats of industrial action at the airline. In a pursuit to speak out against the late payment of salaries, the pilots of the company had declared plans to stage a sit-in at regional airports.

At the centre of the controversy was the failure by LIAT’s management to implement a new salary structure for its ATR-72 pilots; general salary increases; and the pilots’ objections to a salary deferral system, among other outstanding matters. The strike was called off after the two sides reached an amicable decision on the matter.
