Antigua-Barbuda eyes new destinations for LIAT

The Antigua and Barbuda government is eyeing new destinations for regional carrier LIAT as it seeks to become the largest shareholder government of the airline.
It plans to have LIAT fly to the US state of Florida, stopping in places like Jamaica, Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
Antigua and Barbuda is in negotiations with Barbados to acquire most of that country's shares. 
It currently holds 34 per cent of the shares and if it succeeds in convincing Bridgetown to part with its LIAT shares, would have 81 per cent of the airline that employs over 600 people and operates 491 flights weekly across 15 destinations.
