Flights from Cancún, Mexico, to Belize City Now Offered on Tropic Air
Central America just got even more interconnected! A major local airline in Belize, Tropic Air, has officially announced that it has obtained a license from the aviation authorities in Mexico to operate commercial flights between Belize City and Cancún.
For many years now, visitors to Belize have recommended traveling first to Cancún since international flights to that destination are considerably less costly than flights that go directly to Belize City. However, international travelers have often been daunted by the prospect of undertaking the 6-hour journey by bus from Cancún to Belize. Now, with Tropic Air operating flights six days a week (Sunday to Friday) to the city of Cancún and back, it’s possible to significantly cut down on both traveling time and expenses for visitors from European countries and from some cities in the US. The much-anticipated service debuts on March 25th and will operate on the following schedule (all times are local):
|Belize City Int’l (BZE) 11:30 AM||Cancún, Mexico (CUN) 1:15 PM|
|Cancún, Mexico (CUN) 2:15 PM||Belize City Int’l (BZE) 4:00 PM|
As the flights gain popularity Tropic Air plans to expand the service to include more daily departures from both destinations. To celebrate the bridging of the distance between the two cities, the airline is offering round-trip flights booked now through to March 24th, for travel anytime from March 25th to December 15th, 2013, at an introductory rate of $309 US. Hatchet Caye takes this opportunity to congratulate Tropic Air, one of two entirely homegrown airlines in Belize, on this landmark addition to its already robust roster of 11 domestic flights and 2 international routes, namely from Flores, Guatemala, and San Pedro Sula, Honduras, both to Belize City. Flights may be booked by contacting Tropic Air directly or by contacting our friendly reservations personnel at Hatchet Caye Resort, where we are happy to arrange your flights on Tropic Air to Belize City and Placencia before arriving on the sun-kissed shores of Hatchet Caye.< Back
