Airlines are Suspending Flights to Belize

Marvin Manzanero

On the issue of visitors and entry points, Director of Health Services Doctor Marvin Manzanero says that traffic through the P.G.I.A. is already significantly reduced and expected to dwindle further.  He says that multiple airlines are suspending service to the country and more may follow.

“I just got confirmation earlier today that flights out of El Salvador, the Avianca flight is no longer coming; COPA out of Panama is no longer coming. I believe flight coming out Canada, tomorrow may be the last flight that is coming. Even though they are not coming as full as they are, my understanding is that they are mostly trying to take out the tourists that are still in Belize; American and US citizens that are back home because it seems American Airlines may have to ground all flights as of next week Thursday but we may have to make interventions before that, in that regard.”
