Improved air service to and throughout Belize is making the tiny Caribbean country an even more attractive destination this year, according to The Lodge at Chaa Creek.
Roberto Harrison, Chaa Creek’s marketing administrator, said the popular eco resort is already benefiting from improved air services that include direct flights from Los Angeles to Belize City and better in-country service from Tropic Air, the local Belizean carrier.
“Delta Airline's direct, nonstop flights from LAX to Belize have been a real boon for our visitors arriving from the west coast of the US and Canada, and along with improved connecting services, it’s now easier than ever to get to Belize,” Mr Harrison said, adding that Delta’s non-stop service also makes it more convenient for Belize’s large US west coast diaspora to visit home.
“And since Tropic Air introduced a new service from Maya Flats, which is just next door to Chaa Creek, in-country transfers to Belize’s Great Barrier Reef, Caribbean coast and Belize City are quick and easy, making Chaa Creek a hub for travel throughout Belize,” he added.
Mr Harrison also noted that United, American, and TACA offer connecting (change of plane) services.
“American Airlines also highlights service to Belize on their website, and this shows that major airlines are increasingly considering Belize as a valued destination.
“And with Chaa Creek known as Belize’s ‘destination within a destination’ due to the number of activities we offer within our 365 acre private nature reserve as well as our growing number of all-inclusive Belize vacation packages, we expect to see more and more people taking advantage of increased air services to Belize.
“This is excellent news to our growing number of visitors as well as Belize’s ecotourism industry,” Mr Harrison added.
