To whom it may concern;
Over the past 3 years I have noticed a steady increase in the cost of airfare from the US to Belize and would like to bring this to your attention and possibly raise some awareness. I am sure you are fully aware that with the sagging US economy a lot of financial belts are being tightened and travel decisions are being effected by this. I bring this up because my wife and I attempt to travel to Belize 3 times a year to visit friends, family and enjoy all that the country has to offer. Currently the cost of a round trip ticket in February from MEM to BZE is $800.00 and I ask why I can fly significantly cheaper to other Central America destinations (SJO, STT, CUN, CZM, SAP) using the same date range? One destination beat the price by 38% and as much as I love visiting the country of Belize one has to wonder why La Isla Bonita is so expensive?
One has to hope that someone will get the picture….
