Tropic Air announced today, October 4, 2012, that it will be inaugurating daily non-stop passenger and cargo service to San Ignacio (Benque Viejo del Carmen) on December 10, 2012. Service will be from San Pedro and Belize City and will use the Maya Flats Airstrip, which is conveniently located between San Ignacio and Benque Viejo, and near to many of the major hotels in area.
The new service is a direct response to requests from its valued customers, and carries through on the airline’s commitment to the people of Belize. It also will allow for the growth of tourism in both regions, facilitating easy and quick transfers for visitors, and for increased trade between Cayo and the rest of the country.
“When we inaugurated San Pedro Sula earlier this year, we promised the people of Belize to add even more exciting destinations. With the support of our resort partners and the area residents, we now feel the time is right to add San Igancio to our growing network” said John Greif III, President of Tropic Air. “We hope that in the coming months, we are able to add flights and other destinations from San Ignacio”.
