Rumors in town and on the internet are that Tropic Airlines is looking to fly to Chetumal and Cancun. This is something very exciting to know as we all love going to our neighboring city, Chetumal for shopping and of course tourism arrivals from Cancun would be great for La Isla Bonita.  

Ambergris Today spoke with Mr. Anthony Hunt of Tropic Air who stated that Tropic Air will not be having any flights to Chetumal or Cancun. This will not be so at anytime and is not foreseeable in the future as there are many technicalities and other factors that do not allow for this to take place.

Mr. Hunt did share the good news that Tropic Air will be adding two new Cessna Caravans to the fleet of airplanes they have. These two new Caravans are scheduled to arrive in San Pedro in November of this year and are fully equipped with state of the art equipment and radar. With the addition of these two planes Tropic Air will have a total of nine comfortable and durable airplanes.

    What a pity that it is only a rumor.  Tropic Air should not stop complacently because there are technicalities.  It is their duty to serve the public that patrionizes them.  How come Maya made international flights? Whjere there is a will, there is a way.

    Tropic will look at every market and make sound business decisions based on the needs of its passengers, the communities it serves and the employees who work hard to make it a success every day.

    Remember Tropic does fly international...Flores and Guatemala City. And it opened Belmopan about 16 months ago. Places, our friends at Maya do not serve.

    And there will be a few interesting announcements in the coming months. And look out for the new state of the art Caravans coming (Complete with Radar!). Stay tuned!

    Yes Maya HAD international flights, yet they didnt do the proper market research and had to cancel all flight to Mexico and Guatemala City due to low numbers. Hopefully Tropic can work through the technicalities and one day provide service into Chetumal or Cancun.

    "It is their duty to serve the public that patrionizes them."  True.  And they do that by providing safe passage to paying customers.  Meanwhile, if you want to go direct to Chet from SP, take the ferry.
