Tropic Air has taken delivery of its first 19-passenger Beechcraft 1900D aircraft. It arrived at the the Philip Goldson International Airport in Belize City after a ferry flight from the USA and will be put to work on international routes from Belize City to Cancun, Roatan and Flores. It will also be available for charter.

“The 1900D is a world class airliner. It is fast, pressurised, spacious, and has a stand-up cabin with glass cockpit,” says John Greif III, president of Tropic Air. “This is a significant investment for Tropic Air, and we are excited to be the first in Belize and in Central America to fly it in passenger service.”

“This investment underscores our commitment to Belize, and the future of tourism,” says Steve Schulte, CEO. “Adding a new aircraft with the capabilities of this type gives us the opportunity to expand our network with service between Belize and our neighburing countries, increasing tourism arrivals and building regional business opportunities for Belizeans.”

The 1900D is a turboprop airliner that is designed primarily for regional routes. It is popular for its speed and passenger comfort. The aircraft can fly from Belize City to Cancun in as little as 50 minutes and has a crew of two.
