By Benjamin Flowers: Copa Airlines, which suspended flights to Belize back in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is returning to Belize in early June, according to Aviation Online.
An article published this week puts the projected resumption of flights between Panama and Belize at June 2, instead of the previously projected June 18.
“Initially they will have a weekly flight, which varies between Monday and Friday, and will be operated in Boeing 737-800 with capacity for 154/160 passengers. Representing a monthly offer of 1,256 seats,” Aviation online explained.
Sources in the tourism industry tell BBN that Copa is one of several carriers that are preparing to resume their flights to Belize, which is welcome news to the tourism sector. Belize has waived mandatory quarantine requirements for travelers who are fully vaccinated from COVID-19 and is the only country within the region to have rolled out that initiative.
The hope is that the initiative, coupled with the vast number of tourism sector entities achieving the Belize Tourism Board’s Gold Standard Certification for health and safety, will place Belize among the beneficiaries of the gradual resumption of international travel.
