From WestJet to Southwest Airlines, Belize has seen a wave of new flight launches to the destination in the past several years.
Now you can add another new route to the list.
Sun Country Airlines has announced plans to launch new nonstop flights from Minneapolis-St Paul to Belize.
The new flights, which have already launched sales, will begin operating on Dec. 22.
The service will operate once weekly on Saturdays, with flights running through April 20, 2019.
Sun Country, which has been ramping up its Caribbean presence, is the first airline to offer Belize flights from Minneapolis.
“Sun Country’s new nonstop flight from Minneapolis to Belize City marks our farthest reach into the Upper Midwest — an area of the U.S. that can really benefit from easy access to a tropical Belizean vacation when winter comes,” said Karen Bevans, Director of Tourism for Belize. “We appreciate Sun Country for further supporting our thriving tourism industry and providing more curious travelers with seamless opportunities to escape to Belize.”
