More Flights to Belize from Southwest Airlines

Starting June fourth, there will be a daily direct flight from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Belize at rock-bottom prices. That’s the latest coming out of the Belize Tourism Board, the marketing arm of the country, following ongoing dialogue with Southwest Airlines. According to B.T.B., the flight will have multiple connections to and from Fort Lauderdale from cities such as Baltimore, New York, Atlanta, Orlando, and Tampa. Introductory rates for this flight are as low as seventy-nine U.S. dollars one way. Marketing Director Karen Pike told News Five more.

“Ever since we had the flight with Houston Hobby with Southwest Airlines start, we’ve known that Southwest has been interested in giving us a direct flight from Fort Lauderdale to Belize so we are very pleased that finally all the meetings and discussions have now resulted in June fourth being the day that the inaugural flight will take place from Fort Lauderdale to Belize daily, nonstop. For Southwest Airlines, Belize is a new international destination; they have created a lot of buzz about our country and they are looking for this flight from Fort Lauderdale to add to their own revenue stream to increase the popularity of their passengers wanting to come to Belize. For us in Belize, what we see is that we will have the Southwest effect, same as what we had in 2015 where the competitiveness of the rates that Southwest will offer should encourage more potential visitors to come to Belize.”
