Tropic Air Announces Service to Merida, Mexico
Friday, January 31st, 2014
With the launching of this service, Tropic will be the only airline to operate non-stop scheduled flights between Belize City and Merida. Initially, Tropic will fly (BZE) to Merida (MMMD) three times weekly. Tickets are available for sale at a special introductory price thru February.
This new service will allow for the expansion of trade and tourism between the two countries and serve to further grow the historical ties between Belize and Merida. It will also allow the people of Merida to make easy connections to Roatan, San Pedro Sula, Flores, and 11 destinations within Belize.
Merida is Tropic’s second destination in Mexico and its fifth international route. In November, Tropic added Roatan service to complement its existing San Pedro Sula, Cancun and Flores, Guatemala routes.
“We have been working closely with our partners in the Yucatan on this service, and we are excited to be flying there!” said John Greif III, President of Tropic Air. “We expect the market for this service to grow and we plan to add additional service as that happens. Not only will Belizeans finally be able to fly directly to Merida, but this opens up many new opportunities for the archaeological and eco-tourism markets.”
