The Belize media representatives got the opportunity to visit the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site, the Atlanta History Centre, CNN Studio, Centennial Olympic Park and they were able to attend the Atlanta Ballet’s Nutcracker at the Fox Theatre.

The opening ceremonies were held at the VIP lounge at the Philip Goldson International Airport. Mr. James W. Sarvis, Latin America and the Caribbean Director for Delta Airlines, Inc. at its world headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, gave the opening remarks presented a model of Delta’s airplane to Hon. Mark Espat, Minister of Tourism. Minister Espat welcomed Delta, its staff and crew to Belize and wished them success in their new service to Belize.
