Sun Country Airlines Announces New Nonstop Service to Belize

Leading low-cost airline Sun Country Airlines has just announced that it will begin flying to Belize starting on December 22, 2018. Throughout the 2018/19 winter season, Sun Country will be flying non-stop from its hub at Minneapolis-St. Paul (code: MSP) to the Philip Goldson Airport in Belize City (code: BZE), a journey of about five hours. 

Sun Country Airlines will be flying its new Minneapolis-Belize City route between December 22, 2018, and April 20, 2019, to bring residents of the Upper Midwest to the sunny climes of Belize. The new route will make Minneapolis the 10th city in the United States to offer non-stop service to Belize along with the Canadian cities of Calgary and Toronto. The new Sun Country route to Belize, including return flights to Minneapolis, will operate once a week on each Saturday throughout the winter season. 

Along with the new Sun Country Airlines flight, Americans can now easily get to Belize thanks to flights available from Southwest Airlines, American, Delta, and United from cities all over the country, including Atlanta, Los Angeles, Denver, Chicago, Miami, and Houston. Sun Country is a low-cost airline based in Minneapolis that operates 70 routes to warm-weather countries, including Belize. 

Belize is a Caribbean nation located just south of Mexico’s renowned Yucatan Peninsula. But unlike other countries in the region, Belize is a former British colony and an English-speaking nation. Belize is predominately a rural country famed for its outstandingly gorgeous nature and pristine jungles, rivers, and rainforests. 

The climate in Belize is approximately the same as in Miami, a sub-tropical zone that enjoys long, sunny days and warm weather throughout the year. Temperatures only vary slightly with daytime highs in the low to upper 80s Fahrenheit all year long. 

Belize is also home to the Belize Barrier Reef, UNESCO World Heritage Site and the largest coral reef system in the Northern Hemisphere. The Belize Barrier reef contains hundreds of offshore islands and is a world-class mecca for activities such as scuba diving, snorkeling, sea kayaking, stand-up paddling, sailing, and fishing.
