“WestJet currently operates a seasonal flight from Toronto, Canada from October to May, therefore the Calgary – Belize flight is a welcome addition that will further boost Belize’s tourism industry. The new flight is exciting news and it underscores BTB’s unwavering marketing efforts in promoting Belize as a growing, viable and a must-go destination,” said Ms. Karen Pike, BTB’s Director of Marketing and Industry Relations.
Last year Belize registered a record of 385,583 overnight visitors. For the first half of 2017, there were 230,151 overnight arrivals representing a 7.8% increase when compared to the first half of 2016. This trend, along with new international flights, portrays a very encouraging and positive outlook for overnight arrivals for the remainder of this year as well as the further growth of our dynamic tourism industry.
