On December 1st, Belize's oldest and youngest domestic airlines merged. Maya Airways, in service since 1962 and Island Air who began serving Belize in 1989, are now operating as Maya Island Air.
The new company has offices countrywide - Belize City, Dangriga, Placencia, Punta Gorda, Belize International Airport, Caye Caulker, San Pedro and Corozal. In additional to regularly scheduled service to all point in Belize, Maya Island Air flies excursions to Tikal in Guatemala.
Employees of the two companies have been actively engaged in consolidating the offices. All the former telephone numbers are in service, only the greeting - "Hello, you've reached Maya Island Air" is new. In San Pedro, the Maya Island Air office is located at the airstrip in the former Island Air terminal.
