WestJet, one of Canada’s largest airlines, has announced a new direct route to Belize starting October 29.
WestJet made the announcement via press release on Monday morning. The Belize Tourism Board (BTB) also issued its own release expressing its excitement that WestJet has added Belize to its travel route.
The direct flights will be offered twice per week and will fly non-stop from the Toronto Pearson International Airport.
“WestJet is proud to become the only Canadian carrier to fly non-stop to the Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport in Belize,” said Bob Cummings, WestJet Executive Vice-President, Commercial. “The flight’s departure time will allow guests to connect seamlessly from many cities across Canada to a destination known for its large Canadian ex-pat community.
WestJet continues to respond to the needs of the communities we serve by delivering more choice, competition and lower fares to Canadian travellers. The launch of service to Belize and our new, year-round service to JFK underlines our commitment to making air travel better in Canada.”
