Tropic Air announced today, January 31, 2014, that it will inaugurate non-stop service to Merida, Mexico on March 3, 2014.

With the launching of this service, Tropic will be the only airline to operate non-stop scheduled flights between Belize City and Merida. Initially, Tropic will fly (BZE) to Merida (MMMD) three times weekly. Tickets are available for sale at a special introductory price thru February.

This new service will allow for the expansion of trade and tourism between the two countries and serve to further grow the historical ties between Belize and Merida. It will also allow the people of Merida to make easy connections to Roatan, San Pedro Sula, Flores, and 11 destinations within Belize.

Merida is Tropic’s second destination in Mexico and its fifth international route. In November, Tropic added Roatan service to complement its existing San Pedro Sula, Cancun and Flores, Guatemala routes.

“We have been working closely with our partners in the Yucatan on this service, and we are excited to be flying there!” said John Greif III, President of Tropic Air. “We expect the market for this service to grow and we plan to add additional service as that happens. Not only will Belizeans finally be able to fly directly to Merida, but this opens up many new opportunities for the archaeological and eco-tourism markets.”

Tropic’s schedule between Belize City International and Merida:


The new service is bookable via the web at www.tropicair.com, via e-mail at reservations@tropicair.com, by phone at (501) 226-2012, by contacting any of our stations, or your friendly travel professional.

Landing at Merida

Tropic Air’s First Flight from Belize City to Merida, Mexico, The White City

Merida, Mexico is one amazing city. And now, the trip from Belize City to Merida, Mexico is fast, direct and easy. Yesterday, I was lucky enough to be on board the very first commercial flight to Merida with Tropic Air. And I have the certificate (and the gorgeous photos) to prove it. Super exciting.

The view is amazing. This is just north of Belize City.

Up to 8000 feet. A few towns scattered about but most of the Yucatan is unpopulated.

A very smooth hour and a half later we started our descent into Merida. The airport is JUST on the outskirts of the city. It’s a pretty quick ride right to the Centro.
