Copa Airline’s first flight back to Belize


By Jem Smith
There is some exciting news to report: Copa Airlines made its first flight back to Belize since the reopening of the Philip Goldson International Airport (PGIA) on Wednesday, June 2. They, like all other international airlines, stopped flights due to the COVID-19 pandemic which has now plagued the world for more than a year. Now, they will be operating weekly flights to the country, on Fridays, to connect Belize directly to Central and South America.
Nicole Solano, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) in the Ministry of Tourism and Diaspora Relations, says that this flight opens the doors for the needed traffic for tourism. By having a flight directly to and from Panama, passengers from South America will also now have a greater and easier access to Belize and beyond. Furthermore, it opens Central and South America to more European traffic.
