Starting December 13, Air Canada will be increasing the number of direct seasonal flights to Belize.

Air Canada announced this week that there will be flights on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays during the season, which lasts from December to April.

Air Canada began offering direct flights from Toronto in 2017, as a part of an expansion in its number of routes. The Belize Tourism Board celebrated the launch of the flights because Belize has been actively trying to increase the number of tourists coming from Canada to Belize. Canada currently is the third-largest visitor destination, accounting for around 7 percent of tourists to Belize.

Over the past few years, the BTB and its partners have been scaling up marketing campaigns in Canada with the hopes of attracting more Canadian tourists. During the push to increase Canadian market share, WestJet also began offering flights from Canada to Belize.
