Too Kool..did they build a new airstrip? Or is it the Cayo airstrip which is about 10 miles out of Belmopan. Not so convenient...

TROPIC AIR INAUGURATES NEW FLIGHT TO BELMOPAN
April 19, 2010


Ceremonies were held in Belmopan this morning for the inauguration of Tropic Air’s first flight into Belmopan from San Pedro. Flights will be leaving San Pedro in route to Belmopan twice a day on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays starting today. Love News spoke with Johnny Greif, President of Tropic Air.

Johnny Greif; President of Tropic Air

“We’re going to operate two flights a day; in the morning and in the afternoon. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays to start off with and as the service grows and is successful we will add days until finally we’re flying every day. The morning flight we think is going to be more for the San Pedranos that have got business the Belize government and Americans dealing with passport issues and the other San Pedranos, I guess dealing with VISA issues at the US Embassy and the other embassies for that matter; Mexico and the rest of Central America. The return we would hope would provide a little cargo business, high end vegetables going to the Cayes and then the rest of the flights we are really not sure. We are hoping to get some tourism from the Belize International Airport to here for the tourists that are going on to San Ignacio and Cayo. We have been approached by the business community, by the embassies, by the San Pedranos and by the tourism sector in Cayo and San Ignacio for years. This goes back a decade and they have always wanted this service but we have to balance providing a dependable service with making a profit. It was always a question of when not if and we just decided this was the time was right to give it a try.”

Flight prices from San Pedro to Belmopan are three hundred and thirty three dollars roundtrip and roughly about one hundred and sixty dollars one way.

Very handy thing. Could have definitely used this when we were getting our paperwork done way back when. Though I must say riding the bus added to the adventure of it all.
