Tropic Air inaugurated twice daily non-stop service between San Pedro and the Orange Walk Town’s Tower Hill Airstrip on Thursday, December 15, 2011.
The new service is a direct response to input from its valued customers, and carries through on the airline’s stated commitment to the people of Belize. It will not only serve to make travel between San Pedro and Orange Walk easier, but will allow for the expansion of tourism into the Orange Walk District.
“Today, with the addition of permanent service to Orange Walk and the new station there, we make history. We are now the only airline to serve all six districts of Belize” said John Greif III, President of Tropic Air. “We are continuously seeking new and innovative routes that promote tourism, business, domestic travel and cargo within Belize. Orange Walk is just such a destination for the Airline of Belize”
The flight schedule for the new route is as follows:
