LIAT says the flight is part of their commitment to assist islands throughout the Caribbean, which have been affected by hurricanes.

Caribbean airline LIAT continued relief efforts to assist Dominica with a flight into the Douglas Charles Airport on Saturday. 

The relief flight not only brought in supplies to the north of the island but also took in members of the Antigua and Barbuda Defence Force and the Antigua and Barbuda Fire Service.

It also carried in officials from the Eastern Caribbean Civil Aviation Authority (ECCAA) who were able to do assessments of the airport's facilities.

LIAT says the flight is part of their commitment to assist affected islands in the region and the airline is currently working on a schedule to aid in delivering relief supplies, as well as allow passengers and persons from Dominica to fly out to other destinations.

LIAT has been working along with several organizations to assist in the relief efforts to islands affected by Hurricanes Irma and Hurricane Maria.
