Just received an email last night from Tropic Air that all Flores-BZE flights for Tropic and Maya have been cancelled due to "unilateral" changes in regulations by Guatemalan authorities.

Don't have any additional information.

Reposted from Belize Forums:

Here's an extract from Tropic Air's letter they emailed out to agents...

"Due to a unilateral change in Guatemalan regulations, Tropic Air, along with all other Belizean airlines, is no longer able to provide service between Belize and Guatemala effective November 16, 2007. Tropic Air flight numbers 401, 402, 403 and 404 are canceled until further notice.

All tickets will be refunded promptly. To receive your refund please contact your Tropic Air account representative.

We at Tropic Air apologize for any inconvenience. This is certainly an uncontrolled and unfortunate event for Tropic Air, its employees and our passengers who have been flying to Guatemalan destinations for over 25 years."

from a friend...

I hear that Belize imposed unilateral charges on trucks coming into the border management area. Seems like Guatemala is reciprocating.

No connection between the two. The border fees have been negotiated and settled...thats to pay for the new facilities.

Why would you want to go to Tikal? - Caracol is a far bigger site, and less excavated - Caracol conquered and ruled Tikal in the ancient days... IMO Tikal is a tourist trap.

So does anyone know what this is all about, and whether it's temporary or not?

My understanding is that either A) It may be resolved, but not quickly, or B) A Guatemalan airline is planning to start running the route itself and doesn't want the competition.

But who knows really?
