Air Canada, the country’s largest air carrier, has just announced that it will be adding six new international routes, including a non-stop flight from Toronto’s Pearson International Airport (YYZ) to the Philip Goldson International Airport in Belize City (BZE). The new route is scheduled to begin on December 15, 2017, and will run until April 8, 2018. The Air Canada non-stop flight to Belize will be offered once per week using the airline’s Airbus A319 (Rouge configuration) aircraft that can hold up to 137 passengers.
Canadian airline Westjet has been offering non-stop flight service from Toronto’s Pearson International Airport to Belize City since October 2016. The new announcement from Air Canada was welcomed by travelers as it is likely that increased competition will result in lower airfares and more options for Canadians wanting to travel to Belize.
“We warmly welcome the announcement that Canadians will now have additional options when they want to visit Belize,” said Larry France, marketing manager at the Chabil Mar resort in Placencia, Belize. “Wintertime in Canada is the perfect time to visit Belize to enjoy abundant sunshine, warm weather, and plenty of exciting outdoor adventure opportunities.”
Air Canada is the flagship airline of Canada. Founded in 1937, Air Canada is now the world’s eight-largest airline by passenger volume. Air Canada’s principle hub is the Pearson International Airport in Toronto from which the new route scheduled to begin on December 15, 2017, will depart to Belize City. Westjet Airlines already operates seasonal non-stop flights from Toronto to Belize City, and competition in the growing Canada-Belize market is widely expected to result in lower prices for travelers.
