Canadian carrier WestJet is expanding its Caribbean network with a new route to Belize.
Beginning Nov. 3, WestJet will operate weekly nonstop service between Calgary and Belize on Fridays.
The flights will depart Calgary at 9:15 AM, arriving at 2:51 PM, with he return flight departing Belize at 3:45 PM and arriving in Calgary at 10:06 PM.
“The Calgary – Belize flight is a welcome addition that will further boost Belize’s tourism industry. The new flight is exciting news and it underscores BTB’s unwavering marketing efforts in promoting Belize as a growing, viable and a must-go destination,” said Karen Pike, the Belize Tourism Board’s Director of Marketing and Industry Relations.
WestJet already operates a flight between Toronto and Belize from October to May.
