On Saturday, November 1, 2014 Tropic Air opened a new chapter in its long history of providing flights to Belize when Flight 6621 took off from Cancun, Mexico piloted by Belizean pilots, Captain Alberto Ancona and Co-Captain Wally Nuñez. The arrival of Flight 6621 and its passengers at 8:15pm at the Phillip Goldson International Airport marked the launch of an entirely new venture into scheduled night time operations to and from our country.
This flight, as well as one that leaves Cancun at 1:00pm on Tuesdays and Saturdays, is in addition to the 2:00pm departure (except Tuesday’s and Saturday’s) Cancun – Belize flight. It will, for the first time, allow same day connections from Europe to Belize via Cancun. This is a travel option that has been long sought by the tourism industry. The flight is being marketed in conjunction with Germany’s Condor Airlines, a Thomas Cook affiliate.
The flight’s schedule allows for connections to Condor’s flights to and from Frankfurt, Munich, London and Manchester in Cancun, and opens up other convenient travel opportunities to passengers. In addition to Condor and Thomas Cook, it is now possible to connect from other airlines such as British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Iberia, Air France, Aerolineas Argentinas, LAN, Aeromexico, Air Canada and Westjet.
Passengers arriving at Belize international airport on this new flight will have an onward connection to San Pedro, Ambergris Caye (departs BZE at 9:10 pm) available on those two service days.
Tropic Air wishes to acknowledge the help of the Belize Airport Concession Company (BACC), The Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation, Department of Immigration and Customs, and the Belize Tourism Board for making this new service possible.
Tropic Air currently operates a fleet of 15 aircraft to 16 destinations in Belize, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico. With over 290 employees, Tropic Air will carry over 300,000 passengers in 2014. Keep updated on Tropic Air Belize Facebook page.
