Departure tax at airport? - 05/20/07 09:52 PM

Just read a few posts not sure if they are outdated. Is there an imposed $35.00 dept. tax not included in your airfare from Ambergris Caye to Belize where my International flight departs?
thanks for info.

We fly Delta and it is included in the ticket price.

American Airlines -- definitely the $35 charge at the airport. US Airways -- partial...probably 5-7$. Everyone else? I'm not sure...

Sounds to me like the OP is asking if there is a departure fee from AC to Goldson.

Oh...at that point there is no tax. Just when leaving the International airport...

I just found out that Continental has the taxes included in their fare yet US Airways does not.

US Air does.. I just got back last week and it was included.. I paid $5 Belize only for My wife and I.
Check with your Travel agent or the Airlines Direct. It is included if you were told otherwise you were screwed.

It was not included with American Airlines as of the end of March. I was told they got into a squabble with Belize in the manner that it was collected, and they told Belize to collect it themselves. We had flown with AA previously and it was included with the ticket. Just be prepared to pay it, a lot of people were going back to the ATM to try to get money. And it had to be paid in US funds. I was told later VISA was OK as well.
