BELIZE CITY, Belize — Aeromexico, Mexico’s global airline, has announced the start of a seasonal twice a week nonstop flight to Belize starting on November 17 to April 28, making it the first major Mexican commercial airline to offer such service to Belize.
Aeromexico’s flight 67 will be on Saturdays and Sundays. It will depart Mexico at 8:30 am and will arrive at the Phillip S. W. Goldson International Airport at 10:30 am. It will depart Belize at 12:00 and arrive in Mexico at 2:25 pm.
“Mexico is a fast growing market for Belize and therefore we welcome Aeromexico’s new flight as it will highly facilitate the movement of people between both neighboring countries. Belize is a country of countless attributes. Its cultural and natural wealth is virtually unmatched. Its indigenous lineage and multiple ethnic groups, excellent cuisine and friendly people, and the many historical attractions, festivals and natural wonders all makes Belize a perfect Destination, which Mexicans will surely enjoy,” said Karen Bevans, Belize Tourism Board (BTB) director of tourism.
Bevans added that “the BTB is also dedicated to developing and implementing tourism programs that will help strengthen and grow the Belizean tourism industry; promote good destination stewardship; and instill high quality standards for accommodations.”
Announcing the new flight, Aeromexico’s chief revenue officer, Anko van der Werff, said, “At Aeromexico, we are very happy to celebrate this new route that has also become the airline’s 50th international destination, which will help us expand our global connectivity network. This achievement is another sign that we are working to offer better products to our customers, removing barriers between countries, regions, and people.”
Aeromexico first served New York City in 1957 as its first outside of Mexico destination and since then it has become Mexico’s global airline set on a course to offer travellers enhanced options to connect them with the world.
