Tropic Air regrettably announces suspension on three Yucatan and Central American flights. An in-depth analysis of their performance over the past few months, shows there is no clear path to sustainably serving these markets under current economic conditions. The May 1, 2017 departure tax increase was a factor as well.
The routes effected are: Merida and Chetumal both in Mexico and San Pedro Sula, Honduras. The dates of the last flight to or from those destinations are as follows:
- Chetumal; Friday, September 1, 2017
- Merida; Friday, September 1, 2017
- San Pedro Sula; Saturday, September 2, 2017
“We thank all our customers who have supported our efforts to build these routes. It is most unfortunate for those who have come to depend on these regional links, that in the end, we were unable to sustain the growing losses” said Steve Schulte, CEO of Tropic Air.
Tropic Air’s international schedule to Cancun, Mexico and Roatan and Flores, Guatemala will continue as normal.
Passengers having booked flights for Chetumal, Merida and San Pedro Sula will be contacted and alternate arrangements made for their travel to be completed or for refunds to be issued.
