In a virtual press conference held October 16, the Belize Tourism Board announced tentative plans for American Airlines to increase non-stop flight service to Belize this December. While American Airlines currently arrives in Belize from Miami, direct flights from Charlotte, NC and Dallas-Ft. Worth plans to join AA’s roster for winter getaways, with Saturday service scheduled to commence on December 5. Flying time from Miami is two hours, three hours from Dallas, and three and a half from Charlotte; tickets are now available for purchase from AA.com.
Additionally, American Airlines will be adding non-stop flight service to Belize (BZE) from Los Angeles (LAX), starting January 9, 2021. Averaging as a 5-hour service, flight departs LAX every Saturday at 8:00 AM local time. Flights depart BZE at 4:00 PM local time. While all airfares are subject to availability or change, learn more about flying to Belize here.
A face covering is required while flying on American Airlines, except for children under 2 years old. Additionally, travelers are required to wear a mask in the airport where your trip begins and where it ends. While PCR pre-testing in the 72 hours of travel to Belize is strongly suggested, it is not mandatory. Instead, travelers have the option to opt for a double rapid test inside the Belize airport’s health clinic, at a cost to the traveler. Travelers with a valid PCR test can access the airport’s ‘fast track lane’; those taking a rapid test can exit the airport and await test results at their Gold Standard accommodation. If positive, travelers will need to quarantine at their own expense until cleared negative.
Travelers must download the Belize Travel Health App within 72 hours of travel to Belize. All travelers must test negative for COVID-19 in order to enter Belize.
