CHECK IN & CONNECTING FLIGHT POLICIES
Local (Domestic) Flights
You are required to check-in at our ticket counter at least 20 minutes prior to scheduled domestic departure. Failure to do so may result in the loss of your seat and/or ticket.
Connecting TO Another Carrier’s International Flight?
When booking a flight to Belize International Airport (BZE) in order to connect with an international flight, we ask that your domestic portion take into consideration a departure time that allows for a minimum connecting time of at least three (3) hours. This is to ensure that you meet the check-in window requirements of carriers such as American, Delta, Southwest, COPA, Westjet, United and Avianca, as well as provide enough time for security screening for your final destination. If you are travelling on a Saturday, we suggest that additional time be allowed due to congestion at the Belize International Airport.
WestJet customers. We strongly suggest you plan to be at that airline’s check-in counter at the Belize International Airport no later than three (3) hours prior to departure. We kindly ask for you to plan your connecting flight with us accordingly in order to accommodate this requirement. WestJet has a one hour cut-off window at the ticket counter, and will not accept late check-ins under any circumstances. If you miss this window, you will be denied boarding. In addition, Tropic Air will not be held responsible for passengers who fail to plan with these requirements in mind.
If you are connecting from a domestic Tropic Air flight, we still ask for a minimum of 1.5 hours as security rescreening for your international segment is required, and is subject to some of the same aforementioned congestion issues.
Connecting FROM Another Carrier’s International Flight?
When booking a domestic flight from Belize International Airport (BZE) that is connecting from an international flight, we suggest that your domestic portion with us be booked with a minimum (1) hour connection time. This is to allow for customs and immigration transit times.
Tropic Air International Flights
You are required to check-in at our ticket counter in the Belize International Airport, at least one (1) hour prior to your departure time for your international flight with Tropic Air. Failure to do so may result in the loss of your seat and/or ticket.
