About Tropic Air

Founded in 1979 by John Greif III with just a single airplane and two employees, Tropic has steadily grown to become the largest and most experienced airline in Belize, offering over 200 daily scheduled flights.

Since our inaugural flight over 40 years ago, Tropic Air has been a leader in the introduction of modern aircraft technology in the domestic market in Belize. We have played a key role in the promotion of the tourism industry within the country, and have always been committed to the growth of this sector. Tropic Air is dedicated to the highest quality of customer service, delivered with a sense of warmth, friendliness, individual pride, and company spirit. The success of our business strategy requires us to build on these foundations by focusing each day on the business, leisure and cargo markets and by driving efficiency and effectiveness. Tropic Air is also the only airline in Belize to have IATA Standard Safety Assessment (ISSA) Registration.

Cargo is an important part of the airline’s business. Tropic provides scheduled cargo service to all its destinations, offering clients same day transportation of mail, packages and perishable items. Cargo charters are also available.

Tropic Air operates fifteen Cessna Grand Caravans (208B) – Glass Cockpit, two Cessna T182T’s – Glass Cockpit. These aircrafts are configured for three to fourteen passengers. Tropic has a fleet replacement and expansion program with more, 208B-Glass Cockpit, Caravans on order.

Tropic also believes in giving back. It supports the development of the communities it serves through health, sports, drug prevention, education and community projects. Tropic supports the development and growth of the wider tourism industry of Belize through promotional initiatives locally and internationally.

Tropic Air continues to grow its routes and  plans to continue to expand on its infrastructure with new terminals and terminal improvements, in addition to an expansion of its maintenance facilities.

With other international carriers increasing service to Belize, Tropic’s future growth continues to look promising.
