Tropic Air, the premier national airline carrier in Belize, announced yesterday on Facebook that the long-awaited route between Belize City and Cancun, Mexico will officially launch next month.
In the February 26 press release, Tropic Air reports the new route will start on March 25 and run six days a week (except Saturday) between Belize City’s Phillip Goldson International Airport (BZE) and Aeropuerto Internacional de Cancun (CUN).
The route was originally scheduled to start last fall, but regulatory approval delayed the intended launch date. After 10 months of negotiations, Tropic Air finally received its license from the Government of Mexico on February 22.
“Cancun is finally within reach!” said John Greif III, President of Tropic Air. “We expect the market for this service to grow rapidly and we plan to add additional service as that happens. In addition, European and Caribbean connections via Cancun will now be possible for passengers who wish to avoid the long drive from Belize”.
This marks Tropic Air’s first destination within Mexico and is its third international route after San Pedro Sula, Honduras and Flores, Guatemala. Tropic Air also flies to 11 domestic destinations within Belize.
Tropic Air’s schedule between BZE and CUN will be as follows:
- Departs BZE 11:30am Arrives CUN 1:15 pm
- Departs CUN 2:15pm Arrives BZE 4:00pm
To celebrate the newly launched route, tickets are on sale now through March 24 at an introductory fare of $309 US round trip from BZE to CUN for travel between March 25, 2013 and December 15, 2013. Fuel surcharges, taxes, and other conditions may apply.
