Travel to Belize includes stringent rules of engagement visitors must comply in order to stunt the re-emergence of COVID-19 virus; Belize was forced to close it’s borders three months ago in March. Reassured by the Prime Minister of Belize Hon. Dean Barrow, airlines are “ready to resume service once we [Belize] are”. While Delta returns to Belize in September, American and United Airlines return in August.

“Confidence in a safe travel experience is key to a successful recovery. While we’re rebuilding our network at home and abroad, it’s even more critical that we provide the highest industry standard of safety, space and clean so when our customers are ready to travel, we’re ready for them.”

– Joe Esposito, Senior Vice President for Delta’s Network Planning

Delta Air Lines returns to the Caribbean 

Delta cautioned that it would be operating about 25 percent of its schedule compared to the same period last year — although that was a major increase to a less-than 10 percent during April and May. Its relaunch in the Caribbean comes with a host of new health and safety protocols by Delta; from capped cabin seating, blocked middle seats through Sept. 30 and new measures to sanitize the aircraft. However like Delta Air Lines’ return to Belize in September, Atlanta (ATL) will serve as the main hub for Caribbean flights.
