Why are the flights so expensive to Belize at this time. I have been going back and forth from the US (Texas) and Belize since 2004 and never seen such high rates with no advertised specials. If things do not change it will kill any hopes of improving tourism over the summer months. Any hot deals out there?

They have been high since they enlarged the airport runway at international. Its the Belize government ..BTB..etc that just cant seem to understand the importance of tourism. In 5 years we went from no GST..to 12 1/2 %...they charge such unreasonable taxes on airlines flying in and out. 5 years ago the average RT fare to U.S was between $350 and $550 U.S..now its hard to find those fare to Houston or Miami, fares average about $800 now.
Even with the travel warnings about Mexico...its still booming. The Yucatan is still pretty safe and the airfare is cheap. RT from Cancun to US averages about $400. or less. We have been flying out of Cancun and back into Belize City on multicity tickets for half the price of flying RT from Belize City. Its crazy..the country is loosing so much money, then look at their attitude on education, and it seems they dont understand the connection to drug use and violence. A 6th grade education is not an education......

International was privatized before the expansion.
Take a look at who owns it now....

Most governments are covert gestapo orginizations and until education becomes a primary goal, graft, sloth, greed etc. will prevail. Someday maybe, the words of, for and by the people might come to pass. I'm sure we will all be dust by then.

Another factor is lack of service this time of year. US Air from Charlotte and Delta from Atlanta are flying just once a week.

US Air has three or four flights a day from Charlotte to Cancun, but just one on Saturday to BZE.

Continental and American have more service, but overall air lift to Belize is limited in the off season, which puts additional pressure on fares.
