Tropic resumes flights to Guatemala

Story PictureFor almost eight months Belizean aircrafts have been banned from flying to Guatemala but all that will change next month. According to representatives of Topic Air, on July first flights into Flores will resume. The planes will depart from the Belize City Municipal Airstrip twice on Sundays through Thursdays. This development is important to tour operators as the service will enable the return of day and overnight tours to Tikal. In November, both Tropic and Maya Island Air were prevented from flying into Guatemala because they failed to complete the necessary technical paperwork for a valid Air Operator’s Certificate. According to Dennis Sunderman, since the ban, Tropic has been working with the Guatemalan government to find a way for them to restart the flights. There is no word as yet if or when Maya Island Air will resume their flights.
