Belize City Travel Guide

Air Travel

Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport (BZE) is near Ladyville, 9 miles (14 km) north of the city. The international airport is served from U.S. gateways by American (some American flights from Miami operate as a codeshare with British Air), United, Delta, TACA, and US Airways. Tropic Air has flights between the international airport and Flores, Guatemala, gateway to Tikal, and on to Guatemala City.

In addition to international flights, a domestic terminal at the international airport has flights on Maya Island Air and Tropic Air to Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker and the coastal towns of Dangriga, Placencia, and Punta Gorda. Tropic Air also has flights from the international airport to Maya Flats airstrip near San Ignacio and to Belmopan. A Maya Island flight goes to Savannah airstrip at Independence across the lagoon from Placencia.

The Belize City municipal airport, on the seafront about 1 mile (2 km) north of the city center, has domestic flights only; Maya Island Air and Tropic Air serve most of the same domestic destinations from here as from the international airport. Fares from the municipal airport are about 10% to 40% cheaper, depending on the destination, than similar flights departing from the international airport.
