November 23rd, 2020

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The Airline of Belize is now offering guests more regional destination choices than ever before. Today, Tropic Air announces that it will add new international service to San Salvador, El Salvador (SAL) from the Philip Goldson International Airport (BZE) in Belize City. Flights are initially planned for three times a week, and the start date is subject to government approval.

Flight time will be approximately one hour on Tropic’s twin engine Beechcraft 1900D, a modern, 19 seat airliner designed primarily for regional routes such as this. It is popular around the world for its speed and passenger comfort.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”6078″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” css_animation=”fadeInUp”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The addition of San Salvador to the airline’s route map means a broadening of reach into Belize’s important business and leisure markets. Not only is San Salvador the economic epicentre of Northern Central America, but it is also an important trading partner for Belize.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

“We are very proud of our international service growth, connecting Belize to multiple regional destinations over the last 10-plus years. San Salvador is considered a second home to many in Belize, with many historical and economic ties, so our expansion into this market is a natural one. We are very excited to add the destination to our Tropic family”, said John E Greif III, President of Tropic.


“This new route confirms that Tropic sees San Salvador as a major underserved destination,” said Steven Schulte, CEO of Tropic. “Regional air connectivity is a priority for Tropic and for Belize, and with this announcement we see progress toward our goal of providing tourists, and those with business interests, fast, convenient air service. Routes such as this are essential to Belize’s growth.”
