In just a few hours, you could be diving the second largest barrier reef in the world, swimming with the friendliest sharks or exploring the ancient Maya underworld. In addition to American and United Airlines, carriers to Belize now include airlines such as Sun Country, COPA, Southwest, West Jet, Alaska, and Frontier Airlines. This means you can fly with ease from Panama, Canada, and a roster of US cities.
Sun Country Airlines offers travelers from the US Mid-West non-stop service to Belize from Minneapolis – St. Paul, Minnesota on Saturdays.

The return of COPA airlines earlier in June, signaled a sense of normalcy returning to international travel this year. With Copa’s main hub based in Panama, South Americans and Europeans can be basking in Belize’s warm weather in a few hours.
Replace sweater weather in Canada for bikinis and beach bumming at one of Belize’s 400+ islands! West Jet resumed flights to Belize on November 3rd. The airline offers non-stop service from Toronto and Calgary during the months of November and December, just in time for the winter holidays.
Also no stranger to Belize, Southwest Airlines started flying to Belize in 2017. Flights ceased during the heart of the pandemic and resumed on November 7th. The airline currently offers a daily non-stop service to Belize from Houston and on Saturdays from Denver, Colorado.
