Update – September 2017 – regrettably announces suspension on the Chetumal Flights.
For many of us the following announcement has been a long awaited thing as it will make Belize Mexico travel that much easier in 2017. The new Chetumal Mexico flights from Belize will also open up new routes for those that want cheap flights to Belize as in addition to Cancun, Mexico City.
Tropic Air Flight to Chetumal Mexico
Tropic Air announced today that on January 16, 2017, and subject to final Governmental approval, they will run non-stop service between Belize City International Airport (BZE) and Chetumal, Quintana Roo, Mexico (CTM).
Chetumal will be Tropic’s 3rd Mexican destination and 6th international route. Tropic Air Belize will be the only airline to operate non-stop scheduled flights between these two popular travel destinations.
Starting off, Tropic will fly to Chetumal three times weekly, with a schedule allowing for easy connections to and from InterJet flights to Mexico City. Flight frequency is scheduled to increase to 5 times per week in April. In Belize City, Tropic Air will offer easy connections for all their domestic destinations – San Pedro, Caye Caulker, Corozal, Orange Walk, Belmopan, Dangriga, San Ignacio, Placencia and Toledo.
“Our customers have been asking for this for years, so we have been working closely with our partners in Chetumal to finally make it a reality. We are excited!” said John Greif III, President of Tropic Air.
“Not only will Belizeans be able to fly directly to Chetumal, but this route connects to the rest of the world, especially Asia, through Mexico City’s hub” said Steve Schulte, CEO.
