WestJet has just announced their 2017-2018 flight schedule, and new routes include direct flights from Calgary, AB to Belize International Airport.
With the announcement, WestJet is offering great promotional introductory prices, so take advantage of them while they last. Believe it or not, the lowest fares you’ll find from Canada to Belize or for travel on Fridays, starting as low as $285CAD.
“WestJet currently operates a seasonal flight from Toronto, Canada from October to May, therefore the Calgary – Belize flight is a welcome addition that will further boost Belize’s tourism industry. The new flight is exciting news and it underscores BTB’s (Belize Tourism Board’s) unwavering marketing efforts in promoting Belize as a growing, viable and a must-go destination,” said Ms. Karen Pike, BTB’s Director of Marketing and Industry Relations.

The Calgary-Belize flight service is part of WestJet’s seasonal schedule for the winter of 2017-18 which offers optimized service for both the business and leisure traveler and gives Canadians and Belizeans greater connectivity into and out of WestJet hubs in Calgary and Toronto, providing more flight frequency between key routes, more convenient schedules and greater access from regional airports to Canada, the U.S., Mexico, Caribbean and the U.K.
Last year Belize registered a record of 385,583 overnight visitors. For the first half of 2017, there were 230,151 overnight arrivals representing a 7.8% increase when compared to the first half of 2016. This trend, along with new international flights, portrays a very encouraging and positive outlook for overnight arrivals for the remainder of this year as well as the further growth of our dynamic tourism industry.
