Tropic Air of Belize Will Fly to Roatán

Crystal clear waters, outstanding marine life, kind people and the most beautiful skies that merge into the beauty of the blue ocean. Roatán, just 32 miles off the north coast of Honduras, is a true Caribbean gem. Soon, the island will be a destination known worldwide. The impressive coral reef, the lush jungles and award winning beaches have brought people to Roatán for years and things just keep getting better for this piece of heaven, on earth. Tropic Air, a Belizean airline, has announced it will start non-stop service, three times a week from Belize City (Phillip Goldson International Airport BZE) to Roatán (Juan Manuel Gálvez International Airport RTB) starting on November 20, 2013.

With the launching of this service, Tropic Air will be the only airline to operate non-stop scheduled flights between Belize and Roatán. Tropic Air is the largest and most experienced airline in Belize. Flying to 15 different destinations within the countries of Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, and México.

Tropic Air’s service to Roatán is a great addition to the expanding number of direct international flights servicing the island. Not only will it serve to make travel to Roatán easier, but it will allow for the traditional cultural ties between the Bay Islands and Belize to continue and expand. Residents and visitors to Roatán will have access to a wider assortment and better rates on international flights to the United States from Belize City, which has three flights a day to Houston, two to Miami, one to Dallas, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Charlotte and Newark.

The Los Angeles flight, in conjunction with the Tropic Air flight, allows for same day transits to and from the Pacific region (no more overnights in the US needed). Businesses in Roatán will also have access to new markets via the Tropic Air network. Cities such as Cancun (Mexico), Flores (Tikal), Guatemala City, and soon Merida (Mexico) are only one stop and an easy connection away.

Additional benefits for both locations include the diversification of the tourism products of both Belize and Roatán. Local hotels will be able to partner to offer “double dip” vacations, with a couple of days in each location. For example, travelers will be able to dive the Blue Hole of Belize and the dive sites of Roatán all in one vacation. Already Tropic Air is receiving a lot of positive feedback from wholesaler partners in the US who are excited and have already been booking itineraries involving both Belize and Roatán.
