Antigua Sun| LIAT, C-Star focus on busy period before merger

Antigua Sun: "Tomorrow was identified as the deadline for the completion of the merger between regional airlines LIAT and Caribbean Star, but LIAT’s CEO Mark Darby now says that a more practical deadline would be the end of April.
In a recent interview with the Antigua Sun, Darby made it clear that the end of March is merely a deadline to get the legal aspects of his airline’s purchase of Caribbean Star complete. It is not yet clear if this aspect of the merger of the carriers will be wrapped up before the month ends, but Darby indicated that, having implemented a commercial alliance in February and successfully merged the operations of the airlines, there is no great rush to resolve other organisational issues this month."
