BAGGAGE POLICIES

Local (Domestic) Flights

Baggage Policy: Carry-on

Tropic Air permits each passenger travelling domestically in Belize, one (1) carry-on and two (2) checked bags.

We allow one small carry on per passenger. Examples of allowable carry-ons are personal bags such as a purse or a small backpack. Maximum weight of these items cannot exceed 15lbs (6.8kgs), and due to limited cabin space, all carry-ons must fit in your lap.

If your carry-on is larger than the above requirements, your carry-on must be checked-in.

Baggage Policy: Checked Baggage

The checked bags shall have a size limit of 62 linear inches (157cm) with a width limited to 30 inches (76cm) and a height of 15 inches (38cm).

Baggage Policy: Excess Baggage

Excess bags may be placed on a space available status.

Baggage Policy: Oversized Baggage

Due to cargo hold limitations, most bags that exceed 62 linear inches (157cm) in total dimensions may not be able to be transported at all. Tropic Air will not be responsible for these bags getting to your final destination.
