Alaska Airlines announces service to Belize


Another international air carrier has announced that it will add Belize to its travel options. On Wednesday, May 12th, Alaska Airlines said they would soon start offering a non-stop flight to Belize from the west coast in the United States of America. Tickets are set to go on sale in June 2021 with full flight schedules.

The airline posted on social media that they are excited to announce their services to Belize later this year. “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 Minister of Tourism and Diaspora Relations, the Honourable Anthony Mahler, welcomes Alaska Airlines 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 lifeblood of our industry and is essential in making Belize accessible to international visitors and stimulating growth,” said Mahler.

Belize becomes the fourth country that Alaska Airlines flies to from its west coast hubs with this new service. Alaska Airlines and its regional partners serve more than 120 destinations across the USA, Mexico, Canada, and Costa Rica.
