With Belize first reopening leisurely travel on October 1, the country has seen a steady increase in air carriers tapping into this pocket of pent-up demand—especially as the country became the first in the Caribbean to allow vaccinated travelers to visit without a COVID-19 test.
Here’s all the ways to fly into Belize via the Philip Goldson International Airport (BZE), which is the only international airport in Belize, found in Ladyville just 15 minutes out of Belize City.
The Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport hosts direct flights from 14 cities in North America via eight (8) international carriers, along with greater connectivity to Central America via three (3) regional carriers. That’s a total of 11 airlines, 18 cities, and 19 airports. With new non-stop flights, like Alaska Airlines’ service via Seattle and Frontier Airlines’ service via Orlando, Belize’s tourism recovery gets a vote of confidence.
Once in Belize, there are numerous daily flights operated by the country’s two airlines, Maya Island Air and Tropic Air. Domestic airports and airfields in Belize include:
The Western Border and the Northern Border are open from 6:00 am – 10:00 pm for all visitors, both local and foreign. All Sea Ports will be open from 6:00 am- 4:00 pm. The following are additional requirements that you can expect when travelling through our Borders:
• All travellers must purchase mandatory Belize Travel Health Insurance, available online for US$18 per traveller.
• All unvaccinated travellers must test at the border for US$50 per traveller. Travellers under 5 years old are waived from testing.
• Any person testing positive for COVID-19 at the land border shall be placed in mandatory quarantine at the traveller’s expense.
• All visitors to Belize must present a valid passport before entering the country, valid for at least three (3) months after the date of arrival.
