The popular low-cost carrier WestJet has announced that they will be offering non-stop service from Toronto Pearson International Airport to the Philip Goldson International Airport in Belize City beginning October 29, 2016. The announcement marks the first time that Canada will enjoy non-stop service to the popular vacation destination in Central America. The new WestJet flights will be offered twice a week departing at 9:15 AM and arriving in Belize City at 11:59 AM. Introductory fares are set to start as low as $267 CAD one-way from Toronto to Belize.
The Belize Tourism Board reacted favorably to the WestJet announcement. “Canada is one of the strongest source markets for visitors coming into Belize, so we are thrilled by the announcement of the new non-stop service,” said Karen Bevans, Director of Tourism for Belize. “We warmly welcome this new entry into the increasingly popular market. With more international carriers that add routes into Belize, more opportunities will open up to allow international visitors to experience the charm, beauty, and laid-back friendly vibe that makes Belize so special.”
WestJet’s announcement comes on the back of similar announcements from Southwest about new non-stop service from Denver to Belize City and American about direct service from London (UK) to Belize City beginning next year.
