We're flying in from Belize City to San Pedro this Saturday. Anyone have a preference on airlines to use? Are they about the same as far as type of plane and service?

Thanks,
Dave

They are pretty much the same. Same flight times, usually the same price, same terminal, same airstrip. I don't even bother to book passage in the slow season, if one has no seats, the other will.

I tend to use Maya, a lil' cheaper and I am friends with the owners. Both use the same Cesnas to fly the 20 mile or so commute to the island. Pretty much the same. Maya usually has less folks waiting in line. smile

SIN accidents are more likely to happen when a plane flys a LOT more often then say... a plane that DOESN'T! Maya runs late... I like to show up on time! wink
