The Belize Tourism Board (BTB) announced today, Thursday, June 10, 2021, that Southwest Airlines will resume flights to Belize from Houston and Denver, Colorado starting November, 7, 2021. The Airline will offer a non-stop service from Houston from Sunday to Saturday departing Houston at 10:55 am and arriving in Belize at 13:15 pm. The flight will depart Belize at 14:10 pm and arrive in Houston at 16:40 pm. However, on Saturdays the flight will depart Houston at the same time, but will return a bit later at 16:45 pm arriving in Houston at 19:50 pm.
The flight from Denver will be on Saturdays only. It will depart 10:50 am and arrive in Belize at 15:50 pm. The flight will depart Belize at 14:10 pm and arrive in Denver at 17:40 pm.
Southwest started flying to Belize from Denver in early 2017. The airline also offered a non-stop service from Hobby International Airport in Houston and later on added a direct flight from Ft. Lauderdale. However, all flights ceased due to the closure of PGIA due to the pandemic.
Air connectivity is the bloodline of Belize’s tourism industry. The BTB, therefore, welcomes the resumption of flights by Southwest Airline flight because it will make it easier for travelers to enjoy the beauty, the myriad attractions and warm hospitality of Belize at a time when the industry is now on its path to recovery.
