Caye Caulker Flights

Just so everyone might be aware some of the usual Belize politics are going on. Apparently the government is as usual dragging there feet, so Maya Air and Tropic Air has decided jointly to hold the authorities accountable and therefore effective 10/1/17 all flights to Caye Caulker are canceled. Gut feeling is all politics "should" get worked out before flights are halted!

Another good place to keep up with this will be:

Keep checking the websites of the two airlines, Tropic Air and Maya Island Air, for updates.

No doubt I or another forum member will post something when it reopens.

That is sad news and all of the controversy will cause a delay. I understand them wanting to expand the airport, but right now they need to just focus and repair the runway so flights can resume.

Repairs to the CC airport runway are nearing completion.

From the Channel 5 TV News report on 13 April 2018...

"In related news, works on the Caye Caulker Municipal Airstrip for which Hernandez also has the contract are underway. These include rehabilitation and widening of the runway and a new lighting system for night time landings. The facility is expected to be reopened to air traffic in June."

Shoot, heading there mid May, would have loved to have flown. But good news they are working on it.
