Indirect flights from the UK, with connections in the US (Miami, Dallas, NYC) with American Airlines, Continental, Delta, United etc. fly into Philip SW Goldson International Airport In Ladyville to the Northwest of Belize City. Getting around: Tropic Air and Maya Island Air both have multiple flights daily to various towns around the country and to Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker. They fly out of both of Belize City's airports, but flights from Belize City Airport are often significantly cheaper than those out of Phillip Goldson International. Domestic flights are generally pretty reasonable, and thus popular if your time is limited and budget is not. Most flights are in small Cessnas that seat around 8-15 people. Placencia Regional Airport is approximately a 45 minute flight from Belize City International Airport.
