To our valued customers:

The cost of our operations continues to increase forcing us to raise our fares. Costs in the airline industry have become so volatile that major airlines have increased their ticket prices twice within the past two weeks*.

Effective April 1st, 2011 we will increase most of our fares by $5.00 Belize per segment. See the enclosed fare schedule. This is primarily to offset the increased cost of fuel since our last fare increase in 2008. With the continuing volatility of operating costs, we may adjust fares frequently in the future without notice or delay.

While we are delaying this fare increase for the benefit of those customers who may have booked reservations and quoted current fares, we will not be able to protect customers from future increases. If you are quoting airfare in a package you should make the quote subject to immediate purchase of the airfare. Tropic Air is committed to offering the best possible service to its customers. To enable us to do that, we must charge a fair and reasonable price. We welcome any comments you have on this or any other part of our service.
