Delta Air Lines will begin
nonstop service between Atlanta and Belize on December 11. Delta will
offer customers one round-trip, nonstop flight on Saturday only between
its Atlanta hub and Belize using single-class, 150-seat Boeing 737
aircraft. Delta is also increasing its service between Atlanta and
Providenciales, Turks & Caicos, to year-round, daily service starting
Sept. 15. The airline had previously offered seasonal, Saturday-only
service to the city. Located on the Caribbean coast adjacent to Mexico and Guatemala, Belize is
known for its tropical forests, mountains, Mayan temples, and scuba
diving. Belize is home to the longest barrier reef in the Western
Hemisphere, and the people of Belize have protected approximately 40
percent of the country as parks and natural reserves.
In response to customer demand, Delta is also increasing service between
Atlanta and Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Beginning
Sept. 15, Delta and Delta Connection carrier Atlantic Southeast Airlines
will offer daily, year-round service between Atlanta and Providenciales.
The Turks and Caicos Islands, located approximately 575 miles (or 75
minutes) southeast of Miami, is a premiere beach, diving and snorkeling
destination. Providenciales, also known as “Provo”, is the most developed
island in Turks and Caicos—offering visitors beautiful white sand
beaches, tropical sunsets, and more.
