For Immediate Release - Belize, September, 2013

Delta Airlines and United Airlines are offering new non-stop services to Belize City, making Belize even more accessible for travelers departing from Los Angeles and Newark this winter.  

Taking advantage of the West Coast market to Belize, Delta Airlines will be offering convenient non-stop service from Los Angeles (LAX) to Belize City (BZE) on Saturdays starting December 21st, 2013.  The Boeing 737-800 aircraft flying this route will have 160 seats available.  Delta is the only airline offering the convenience of non-stop service between Los Angeles and Belize City.  Flights depart at approximately 12am, and land in Belize City at 7am.
