Tropic Air announces this week the addition into scheduled service of another Cessna Grand Caravan turbo prop aircraft. This latest addition to the fleet features air conditioning and the Garmin G1000 glass cockpit avionics suite with radar. This brings the number of Cessna Caravans in its fleet to ten, and overall number of aircraft to 15.
The latest aircraft arrived last Thursday, November 20, 2014, at the Philip Goldson International Airport (BZE) after completing its journey from the USA.
The latest fleet expansion is to support the growing number of tourist arrivals, the increase in international airlift and bed capacity of expanding resorts, its own route and service expansion, and a general growth in economic activity in Belize.
Additional support aircraft are also to be brought-in this December for the high season to meet the demand for the growing customer base.
Tropic operated over 50,000 flights last year, serving over more than 300,000 passengers. It operates to 16 destinations in Belize, Honduras, Mexico and Guatemala. With over 290 employees, Tropic Air launched flights to its newest destination, Merida, Mexico in March of this year.
