Tropic Air announces that effective November 13th, 2019 it will commence regularly scheduled air tour flights from Placencia to the Blue Hole.

“For some time we have been working with our Customers in Placencia to find a way to make these flights happen”, said John E. Greif III, President of Tropic Air. “We have always offered Blue Hole charters from the South, but the time is now right to offer a scheduled flight for the growing tourism market in the peninsula. We know visitors to Placencia want the opportunity to experience Belize’s number one attraction, the way it should be seen, from the air, and we will deliver.”

Flights will depart at 11am on air conditioned Cessna Caravan 208 aircraft, seating 11 passengers in an “air tour” layout. Tropic Air is a certified tour operator and, as such, Blue Hole flights will have a pilot that is also a certified tour guide on board.
