We recommend that you arrive at the airport to check in at a minimum of ninety (90) minutes prior to your scheduled time of departure. Check-in closes thirty (30) minutes before departure. LIAT reserves the right to cancel the reservations of any passenger who does not check-in at least thirty minutes (30) prior to the scheduled or posted departure time of the flight.
Passengers who have checked-in for a flight and have received a boarding pass must present themselves at the departure gate and be ready to board their flight no later than fifteen (15) minutes prior to departure. Passengers not in the boarding area by this specified time prior to scheduled departure are subject to seat cancellation.
Traveling on the LIAT network is considered International travel. All customers are required to present proof of identity such as a valid government issued photo ID and proof of citizenship such as a passport at the LIAT check-in counter. Passengers must keep proper documentation on their person during travel. It is the passenger?s responsibility to ensure that they have in their possession the correct documents needed for travel to any destination. Passengers must also be in possession of a copy of their itinerary as proof of their onward or return journey.
The free baggage allowance applicable to an adult passenger and children whose fare is at least 50% of the adult fare will be 23 kilos or 50 pounds. This allowance includes the weight of cabin baggage (unchecked baggage).
No free baggage allowance is granted to infants; however napkins, feeding bottles and sufficient food for the journey may be carried free provided the total weight of such articles does not exceed 6 kilos. If this amount is exceeded, the excess weight is treated as part of the allowance of the accompanying adult passenger.
Air Safety Regulations do not permit the carriage of cabin baggage within the passenger cabin unless its dimensions permit it to be stored under the passenger seat or in the overhead storage bins where provided. Each adult or child passenger is permitted one standard piece of carry on luggage subject to a maximum weight of 8 kilos or 18 pounds. Maximum size, cabin baggage templates are available at some check-in desks.
In addition to the free baggage allowance a passenger may carry free of charge, any of the personal articles listed below:
* A lady?s handbag, pocketbook or purse, i.e. which is appropriate to normal travelling dress and is not being used as a container for the transportation of articles which should otherwise be regarded as baggage.

Note: An infant carrying basket or bassinet will not be transported in the aircraft cabin unless the size of the basket or the bassinet will permit it being secured by a seat belt and a seat is reserved for the infant and a child?s fare paid.
Cabin bags, briefcases, ladies vanity or cosmetic cases are not included in the free personal articles list. These items and others which do not visibly accord with the description of personal articles must be weighed and such weight included in the total baggage weight.
