San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize, November 14, 2016
TROPIC AIR ANNOUNCES SERVICE TO CHETUMAL, MEXICO on January 16, 2017, and subject to final Governmental approval, it will inaugurate non-stop service between Belize City International Airport (BZE) and Chetumal, Quintana Roo, Mexico (CTM).
Chetumal becomes Tropic’s third destination in Mexico and its 6th international route, and it will be the only airline to operate non-stop scheduled flights between these two historically close cities.
Initially, Tropic will fly to Chetumal three times weekly, with a schedule that will allow for fast, convenient connections to/from InterJet flights to Mexico City. In April, the frequency is planned to increase to five times a week. In Belize City, Tropic Air will offer easy connections to/from domestic destinations such as San Pedro, Caye Caulker, Dangriga and Placencia.
“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.
Tropic’s schedule between Belize City International and Chetumal (with the InterJet connection) is:
