Tropic Air Expands Fleet to 15 Aircraft
Tropic Air announced today 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 new plane represents the latest in passenger comfort for flights to Belize.
The latest fleet expansion is to support the growing number of tourist arrivals for Belize destinations, 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 with over 290 employees. It operates to 15 destinations in Belize, Honduras, Mexico and Guatemala.
