Tropic Air announces that it will commence new nonstop service between El Salvador International Airport Saint Óscar Arnulfo Romero y Galdámez (formally Comalapa International Airport) in San Salvador (SAL) and the Philip Goldson International Airport (BZE) in Belize City. Flights are initially scheduled for Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays beginning Friday, February 11th, 2022.
Flight time will be approximately one hour on Tropic’s twin engine Beechcraft 1900D, a modern, 19 seat airliner designed primarily for regional routes such as this. It is popular around the world for its speed and passenger comfort. In celebration of this new service, a special introductory fare of US$99 each way plus taxes is now available for travel through February 28th, 2022. This fare can be purchased through their website or from any of the airline's stations.
“We are very proud of our international service growth, connecting Belize to multiple regional destinations over the last 10-plus years. San Salvador is considered a second home to many in Belize, with many historical and economic ties, so our expansion into this market is a natural one. We are very excited to add the destination to our Tropic family”, said John E Greif III, President of Tropic.
“We see San Salvador as a major destination with a lot of potential,” said Steven Schulte, CEO of Tropic. “Regional air connectivity is a priority for Tropic. We believe this route will grow quickly into a daily service. It provides business interests and families fast, convenient air service. It opens another gateway for South American tourists to reach Belize. Routes such as this are essential to Belize’s growth.”
The addition of San Salvador to the airline’s route map means a broadening of reach into Belize’s important business and leisure markets. Not only is San Salvador the economic epicentre of Northern Central America, but it is also an important trading partner for Belize. San Salvador will join Cancun, Roatan, and Flores (Peten) on the Airline’s international route map.
