If you’re one of those individuals that can escape Belize City for the rest of the state of emergency perhaps you would be interested in flying to the cayes. In October, 2017 local airlines stopped flying to Caye Caulker after sending many complaints to the authorities that the airstrip was not safe.  The move forced the Government to rehabilitate the airstrip and after many months, today there was an official ceremony to mark the re-opening. A very proud Minister of Tourism and Civil Aviation, Manuel Heredia Jr. spoke at the reopening of the airstrip today.

Those figures are expected to grow steadily over the next few years, ensuring this island’s prominence in our Tourism and Transportation Industry.

Minister Heredia spoke about the objectives of the airstrip project.

Manuel Heredia Jr. Minister of Tourism and Civil Aviation: Modernizing  this aerodrome, our objectives was to continue to enable Caye Caulker’s economic and tourism growth while ensuring that international aviation safety standards are observed.  This is a mission that we will continue to pursue to the word of the Belize Port Authority . As the Minister in charge of Tourism and Civil Aviation, I can state that our objectives have been met and a through the base the work we continue to ensure that these two industries: Tourism and Transportation enjoy a large step ascent.

Heredia indicated a number of concerns were raised while the airstrip remained closed.

Manuel Heredia Jr. Minister of Tourism and Civil Aviation: Initially there were many concerns when the Caye Caulker Municipal airstrip was closed to allow the actual renovation project to begin. There was inconvenience caused no doubt but we are eternally grateful for the patience and position by the people of Caye Caulker and our partners of aviation during this process.
