Belize City Philip SWGoldson Int - BZE?

Hello. BZE is the only airport in Belize (other than the municipal airport) - correct? Just beginning to look for airfare.

Yes, BZE is the only international airport in Belize.

Although, it you have a relatively long trip in mind, say, more than 10 days, you might consider flying into Cancun and taking the bus to Belize, It can be much cheaper....

PGIA is about 10 miles from Belize City. If you're coming on a commercial flight, it's the only international airport.

Municipal is a few km from the downtown area of Belize City. It's used for domestic flights.

There are airports/airstrips at many other locations in Belize.

Thanks for your response Mister B266. So, BZE is the correct airport code then? That is the only option on American (AA) other than the municipal airport. I don't want to screw up something so fundamental!

Opps........ didn't see JeanH's response. Sorry! I was going to use AA award miles for the trip to Belize Jean, if things go as planned. Thanks for that tip though (bus) as I am sure others will like to know that.

BZE is the code for Philip S W Goldson International Airport (PGIA). It's referred to as the Belize City airport, but it's actually 10 miles from the City centre in Ladyville. This is where you land if coming from USA. You will not land at Municipal.

Municipal is used only for domestic flights (within Belize).
