Canadian regulators have approved a request by Air Canada to operate flights between Canada and Belize, according to Canadian Transportation Agency documents.

The documents do not specify routes or a start date, and Air Canada did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The approval applies to Air Canada, Air Canada Cargo and the company's low-fare Rouge unit.

Air Canada has not served Belize since at least 2005, the earliest available year of FlightGlobal schedules data.

WestJet, however, launched its first Belize flight between Toronto and Belize City in October 2016. WestJet will operate that route seasonally through April, schedule data shows.
