Tropic Air is looking at linking Belize and Chetumal in Mexico through scheduled flights.

According to Honorary Consul of Belize in Chetumal, Juan Valencia Gomez, the state Ministry of Tourism – Sedetur – along with the Ministry of Transport and Communications are the entities that will have to finalize the new air routes. In speaking with Mexican media, Honorary Consul Valencia Gomez said the connection is highly anticipated by both entrepreneurs and tourist from Belize and Mexico. In April this year, the same airline re-initiated its flights connecting Belize with Cancun Mexico. It’s expected the flights should start by November this year or February next year.
