This Wednesday, December 11, Tropic Air commemorates its 40th birthday, and the airline is marking it by celebrating with customers.
“The mission of Tropic Air for the past 40 years has been to build the tourism industry of Belize with convenient dependable air service throughout the country and beyond. We would not be here today without the pioneering spirit and unwavering support of our colleagues in the Belize tourism industry” said Steven Schulte, Tropic’s CEO. “We help to connect families, fulfill vacation dreams and make business travel easier so that we can all grow and prosper. It’s been a wonderful 40 years, and we look forward to many more.”
“From that first pioneering customer who flew with us in 1979 to a rough landing strip in San Pedro, to the hundreds of thousands who will choose to fly with us in 2020, on more than 200 flights a day to 15 destinations around the region, on 19 aircraft – we thank them all,” added John Greif III, President. “From humble beginnings, we have grown to become an international airline and a strong contributor to the growth of Belize. The story of Tropic Air mirrors the story of the growth of our customers, and of tourism in Belize. Of that, we are most proud.”
Customers flying with Tropic Air on Wednesday will be greeted with decorations and refreshments, special discounts and souvenirs. In addition, there will be special surprises for cargo customers, and as an added birthday gift, all Tropic Miles members who fly with us on that day, will receive 500 bonus miles added to their accounts.

Belize's biggest airline, Tropic Air celebrated its 40th anniversary today. Hard to believe, but the transport powerhouse which now flies 200 flights a day to 15 destinations on 19 aircraft, started out as a mom, pop and son operation back in December of 1979.
It's been 40 years of strong growth, but what's next for Tropic Air? Today we went to their birthday party in Caye Caulker to find out:
Tropic Air says it s was will carry over 300,000 passengers and 425,000 items of freight this year. It employs 360 persons.
