Are there direct flights from Europe to BZE currently?

Belize doesn't even have scheduled service from Canada, its #2 tourism market. It'll likely be a long while before there's any service from Europe.

Slight correction there. laugh
SkyService does have flights from Toronto, once a week (Thurs) during high season. They are called "Direct" flights, but in reality, there is a stop in Cancun on the way down. The flight home is direct.
It is great that we don't have to change planes or deal with Homeland security (ie USA customs).
I have used this service the last two trips and LOVE IT!
Hey they even had fantastic seat sales this year!
Hopefully they will offer the same service again next year.

Didn't they lengthen BZE to accommodate the larger non stops from Europe, to open more tourism without US BS?

SkyService is a CHARTER, not a scheduled airline like Delta, Continental, USAir, American and TACA, all of which fly to Belize, or Air Canada and WestJet (which do not.)

It is good, though, that Canadians in the Toronto area at least have that charter option even though it is only seasonal and goes through Cancun.

Yes, Lan, you are correct SkyService is a charter. smile

I don't mind the quick stop in Cancun. Easier than a cheap flight to Cancun and then doing the bus (etc) to Belize.
