By BBN Staff: According to Flightglobal.com, Canadian regulators have approved a request by Air Canada to operate flights between Canada and Belize.
Flightglobal.com says that documents obtained from the Canadian Transportation Agency did not specify routes or a start date and that Air Canada did not immediately respond to a request for comments.
Air Canada has not served Belize since 2005, the earliest available year of FlightGlobal schedules data.
In October 2016, Canadian airline, WestJet launched its first Belize flight between Toronto and Belize and now operates the route during Belize’s high tourism season which runs from November to April.
This news comes after GOB recently announced that departure taxes are set to increase for fiscal year 2017/2018 from US $39.25 to US $59.25 (BZ $118.50).
