Aeromexico has announced plans to add seasonal, twice-weekly flights to Belize, which the airline says will make it the first major Mexican commercial carrier to offer such a service to the country. The new, nonstop service will run November 17, 2018, through April 28, 2019.

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.

In a written statement Belize Tourism Board Director of Tourism Karen Bevans said that Mexico is a fast-growing market for Belize, and that the BTB is developing programs to help grow the destination’s tourism industry, promote good destination stewardship and instill standards for accommodations.
