Information on Airports in Belize
Belize’s main international airport is Phillip S. W. Goldson International Airport, a small, single-runway airport a few miles inland of Belize City on the country’s East coast. The airport is about a thirty-minute drive from Belize City, and is best accessed by taxi. There is an airport bus, but it is infrequent and unreliable.
It’s also possible to rent a car, with major outlets like Hertz and Avis rubbing shoulders with Pancho’s and Jabiru. However, the most common form of transport around Belize City for visitors is the taxi. These operate on a fixed fare basis; there’s no meter, and prices are agreed between passenger and driver before the journey begins. The taxis to Belize City are a standard rate and the rate is displayed at the rank.
Philip S. W. Goldson Airport offers a porter service, available in the Arrivals Hall and in Terminals 1 and 2. The porters are an independent union who hold the concession to work in the airport but do not work for the airport directly. They are easily recogniseable by their white uniforms, and paid directly by passengers. Lost and found items can be found by contacting airport security.
Currently the terminal building offers a restaurant, a snack bar, a bank and a bureau de change as well as car rental as well as hotel information. However, the airport is planning an expansion. At present though, the facilities for disabled passengers are quite basic so you’re advised to contact your airline prior to travel and check or make arrangements with them.
