Press Release – Tropic Air – Tuesday, July 31, 2012
Tropic Air announced today that it will be increasing its non-stop service between Belize City (International) and San Pedro Sula, Honduras from three (3) to five (5) times a week effective November 4, 2012. This is a direct result of the increasing demand and the support that our customers have given to the service (launched earlier this year).
Starting November 4th, Tropic Air will serve the route on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Not only will these new frequencies allow for more options for our passengers, but it will also allow for an increase in trade and business related activities between the two countries.
“When we inaugurated our San Pedro Sula service earlier this year, we promised the people of Belize and Honduras to add service as we saw the route grow” said John Greif III, President of Tropic Air. “Our passengers have responded and supported us, so it was a natural fit to add more service days…..we hope that soon it might even be daily .”
The flight schedule for the San Pedro Sula (SAP) is as follows:
|T200||Belize City (BZE)||8:00AM||San Pedro Sula (SAP)||9:00AM|
|T201||San Pedro Sula (SAP)||9:30AM||Belize City (BZE)||10:30AM|
|Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday|
Service to San Pedro Sula are on Tropic’s two brand new, state of the art, glass cockpit (G1000) Cessna Caravan aircraft. These aircraft come equipped with radar, GPS navigation and terrain mapping, a first for any airline in Belize.
Tropic Air currently operates a fleet of 11 aircraft to 13 destinations in Belize, Guatemala and Honduras. With over 250 employees, Tropic Air carried 200,000 passengers in 2010.
