Tropic Air Announced today, Friday, October 5, 2012, that it will be inaugurating non-stop flight to Cancun, Mexico on November 12, 2012. With the launching of this service, and the opening of its new station there, Tropic Air will be the only airline to operate non-stop scheduled flights between the two countries.
This new service is a direct response to requests 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 to Mexico easier, but will allow for the expansion of trade and tourism between the two countries and an alternate route for Europeans wishing to enjoy all that Belize has to offer.
“When we inaugurated San Pedro Sula last year, we promised that we would keep growing internationally. This fulfills that promise and there is even more to come. Cancun is an integral part of the growth strategy of Tropic Air and as such we feel it important that we link the vibrant tourism market of Cancun with Belize,” said John Greif III, President of Tropic Air.
The flight schedule will be released shortly and it will be available for booking in the coming weeks.
Tropic Air operates a fleet of 12 aircraft, including the latest generation G1000 “glass cockpit”, air conditioned Cessna Caravans. With the addition of Cancun and San Ignacio, Tropic will fly to 15 destinations in Belize, Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala. With over 250 employees, Tropic Air carried 250,000 passengers in 2011.
