The disclosure came as the airline announced that its freighter service has transported a million pounds of cargo within a year of its February 2011 launch.
Edwards said the milestone was achieved with this month’s opening up of the San Juan and the United States Virgin Islands market.
The airline was previously unable to move cargo into those territories because of the 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States.
“Next year we will focus on greater service delivery and using our website …to better advantage in terms of tracking, proof of deliveries and other customer service information,” Edwards said in a media release.
“We said we would do it and we did, in spite of many challenges and set-backs.
He noted that the freighter service has stimulated significant movements on LIAT’s regular line flights, which when combined produced more 1.5 million pounds.
The airline official pointed out that amount does not include more than 30,000 pounds of bulk baggage also carried by the freighter aircraft over the period.
Chief Executive Officer Brian Challenger said the management was proud of the achievements of its cargo team.
