Southwest now flying to Belize, starting at $255 RT

As of January 5th of this year, Southwest is officially flying into Belize City, with one way tickets starting at $99 and round trip tickets starting at $255, from Houston city’s Hobby Airport.

As for Houston, the city’s Hobby Airport has primarily been a domestic airport since the opening of the bigger Houston Bush Intercontinental Airport in 1969. But Southwest – by far the busiest airline at Hobby – launched its first international routes earlier this year and has said it would like to develop Hobby into one of its international bases. The carrier is in the midst of a $156 million project for a five-gate international concourse at Hobby that would allow international flights.

“We’re building our first-ever international terminal project to give Houstonians, visitors to Houston, and our connecting customers exceptional value and legendary customer service in international markets for which there is great demand,” Southwest CEO Gary Kelly says in a statement.
