The situation isn't simple for businesses within the tourism industry. Stakeholders are already feeling the financial pain resulting from the world's populations shutting down all international travel, while everyone bunkers down for the pandemic to run its course.

The biggest domestic carrier, Tropic Air is one of those tourism stakeholders who is losing 10s of millions of dollars in this climate of global tourism industry meltdown.

They are already reporting that their revenues have been cut by half, and they are doing the best they can to remain open for business and keep people employed during the global COVID-19 scare. We spoke with the President of the company in San Pedro today, and about their plight:

As you heard, the company is doing the best it can to keep all employees on staff during this global emergency. The president tells us that they have a series of very difficult decisions that they may have to make, but right now, no one is being laid off.

The airline of Belize, Tropic Air, has reduced its service by half as its business has been dramatically affected by the large number of travellers cancelling reservations due to the pandemic COVID-19. Tropic Airís President John Greif III told the media that they have some of their staff on voluntarily leave as they continue the battle with the significant decreases in business that are in the millions. Greif took the opportunity to thank his employees for being very receptive and working along with the company as they struggle through this global emergency.

Due to Covid related circumstances, Tropic Air has released the following statement:


Due to the extraordinary circumstances being brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, Tropic Air will have to suspend all flights to Orange Walk (Tower Hill) with immediate effect. This is in addition to the suspension of flights to Roatan, Honduras and Flores, Guatemala that were announced earlier this week, and were a result of those nations closing their borders.

Cargo service to all stations, including package pick up and drop off, has also been amended. Cargo will now be available Monday to Saturday, until further notice.
