mayan air buying roatan air - 01/27/09 04:37 AM

was wondering if anyone has heard about this?

i hear rumblings that mayan was buying roatan air and the reason that that is important is because i am told that roatan air has flights from cancun or cozumel and that those flights would run from can/coz to belize city, then on to roatan.

does anyone have the scoop?

If that's true, then flying from the US to Belize just got a lot cheaper.

You can fly into Cancun from the US, and get a RT ticket from Cancun to Belize City. Since flights are alot cheaper flying into Cancun, could save some cash going that route if the Cancun-Belize City tickets are reasonable.

The Cancun to Belize tickets will make it a wash.

Let's say you get a $400rt to Cancun from anywhere USA. It runs $110 or so to fly bze to san pedro. Now add in a $250 minimum ticket cancun to bze.

Looking at what type aircraft flies the route, it may be a $400rt ticket from cancun.

Still that's $650 from US to Belize City, which is cheaper then some fares I've seen.

You'll have to buy the $110 bze-San Pedro ticket regardless of where you fly from.

But you're right it'll probably be a wash, unless you can get a good special price into Cancun, or if that Cancun-Belize City flight is cheaper. I've taken a few commuter flights around Latin America that we're surprisingly cheap though, so we can hope. I flew Flores-Guatemala City for $200 RT, but that was a few years back.

Don't tell me, tell Darrin Fisher: he's the one who heard a rumor and is asking a question !

I someone has information and someone else is asking a civil question,such as

"does anyone have the scoop"

it would be courteous to share, or am I missing something here?

Roatan Air is a small charter service that does not seem to offer scheduled flights, so check back with your source Darrin?

I heard that Maya was going to start flying from southern Belize direct to Roatan, starting in February. I e-mailed Maya and asked if it was true. Their reply was that they were going to start flying that route 'sometime in 2009'. I'm not holding my breath.

Pug- If you and your parrot would step aside I'll get that information from Darrin.

Re: mayan air buying roatan air - 01/27/09 02:23 PM

Darrin- Do you know the name of the airline that serves Chetumal and Cancun?

Doubtful at best, there are rumours circulating that Maya is doing something, but believe it when you see it. cool

Maya flies to San Pedro Sula now....flights to Roatan would be nice.

I think there would be a huge demand (all things being relative) for flights between Belize -- Belize City or San Pedro -- and Roatan. Hope Maya Island can make it work.

no i do not....didnt know id create such a ruckus, lol.

i have a friend or 2 in belize that seem pretty well informed. id rather not air their laundry or names here but...

what i was told was that there is an airline in roatan (might be wrong on it being called roatan air) that was being bought by mayan air. i beleive the route i was told was that it would be flying from roatan to belize city and on to either can/coz.

it would be just like a commuter flight that happens just like new orleans to atlanta, or new york to dc.

i was just wondering if my guy was a) mistaken, b) its still down low (i have no idea why), or c) bullchips.

i guess im still waiting :^)
