SLASPA prepares to receive evacuees

Saint Lucia Air and Sea Ports Authority (SLASPA) has activated its Port Response Plan to receive evacuees from areas of St. Vincent affected by the ongoing eruptions at La Soufriere volcano.

The plan identifies the George F.L Charles Airport and the Castries Seaport as the designated entry points for

evacuees. The Authority is working in close tandem with essential partners, particularly the Ministry of Health and Wellness to ensure adherence to the Ministry’s stipulated COVID 19 protocols.

SLASPA continues to work with the Government of Saint Lucia through the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) in Saint Lucia, other relevant, local and regional officials, and counterpart agencies to respond to any possible effects of the ongoing eruption in Saint Vincent.
