Tropic Air announced today that it expects to take delivery of two Cessna Grand Caravan EX’s. These aircraft are equipped with Garmin avionics, weather radar and air-conditioning. Expected delivery is within the month of August.
“These aircraft represent a BZ$14,000,000 vote of confidence in the continued growth of tourism in Belize and in the expansion of Tropic Air,” said John Greif III, President. “The Caravan is the right aircraft for Tropic as it allows us to serve all domestic airstrips within Belize. It also is the most technologically advanced aircraft in its class. We love its performance and passengers love it for the air-conditioning and comfort.”
“As evidenced by our recent announcements of new interline partnerships with COPA and Condor Airlines, our increased service to Placencia, Roatan, San Pedro, and a restart of Caye Caulker operations, we are confident in our continued growth” said Steve Schulte, CEO of Tropic Air.
With the addition of these two new aircraft, Tropic’s fleet will number 16. Tropic also has lease options on two Twin Otter aircraft for seasonal use.
