So we've put together the 411 on getting to Belize by air this Fall 2015 and into 2016.

Belize will have a whopping 66 flights per week coming from the United States.

The four major airlines offering daily service from the United States into Belize are American Airlines, Delta Airlines, United Airlines, and soon Southwest Airlines. Tropic Air, Copa, and Avianca/Taca will get you here from Mexico, Panama and other Central American Countries.

United - Houston to BelizeBy March 2016, Belize will have 528 international nonstop flights per month from 16 foreign airports and 7 airlines including the newest ones Copa Airlines and Southwest Airlines

Southwest is currently taking the cake on best fares. Beginning October 15th, 2015 Southwest Airlines will begin DAILY flights direct from Houston's HOBBY airport. The HOU to BZE flight will take off at 1:45pm and land in Belize at 3:05pm .The returning flight from BZE to HOU will depart Belize at 5:40pm and land in Houston at 8:15pm.

If you've never flown Southwest before - you might find them to be quite refreshing. They are known for a few key differences:

  1. Two 50 pound bags fly free with you. FREE. And you still get a carry-on.
  2. No assigned seats. They assign boarding numbers in three groups, A, B, & C and you line up and board accordingly and take the first available seat that appeals to you. You can pay more to board earlier. They do let families with children board after all of group A has boarded.Southwest - Houston to Belize And they will assist you if you cannot find a place next to your child.
  3. No fees to change your flight. NO FEES. You will pay fare differences, but no fees just because you want or need to change your flight. (United for example charges $200 + fare differences)

United is price matching the fares from Houston to Belize, though they operate out of IAH in Houston.

There are more flights than ever landing daily at Belize's Philip Goldson International Airport and that means more seats for the airlines to fill. Which ultimately turns out to be a good deal for you!

Pro Tip: Set flight notifications to email you when fares drop!
