By Benjamin Flowers: Belize’s tourism sector got even more good news this week as Alaska Airlines, the fifth-largest airline in the United States, has announced a new non-stop flight from the West coast of the US to Belize later this year.
Tickets for the flights will go on sale in June with full flight schedules to be announced. The new service makes Belize the fourth country that Alaska Airlines flies to from its West Coast hubs, joining Canada, Mexico, and Costa Rica.
“Our guests are eager for eco-friendlier leisure destinations, especially as they get vaccinated, and we’re ready to offer them terrific options,” said Brett Catlin, Alaska Airlines Vice President of Network and Alliances. “Belize offers an unbeatable mix of sensational beaches, iconic cayes, and rich heritage.”
The Belize Tourism Board announced the flight this afternoon, noting that Alaska Airlines ranks fifth in the US when measured by fleet size, scheduled passengers carried, and the number of destinations served. Minister of Tourism and Diaspora relations Anthony Mahler commented following the announcement.
“We wholeheartedly welcome Alaska Airlines’ announcement of its nonstop flight to Belize. This new partnership signifies that our unwavering commitment to revive and rebuild our tourism industry is gaining momentum and recovery is on the horizon. Air connectivity is the life-blood of our industry and is essential in making Belize accessible to international visitors and stimulating growth,” Mahler said.
