According to the Belize Tourism Board, Canada is a major source market for overnight visitors to Belize. Adding WestJet will mean an increase in Canadian visitors, as the direct flight route is convenient and more practical for travelers.


The announcement is welcomed in anticipation of the upcoming high season, and Canadians can look forward to enjoying the fun that Belize has to offer!
