Visiting Belize and Chaa Creek Just Keeps Getting Easier

American Airlines and Belize are sort of like Love and Marriage, Macaroni and Cheese, Peanut Butter and Jelly, Romeo and Juliet… you get the idea.

So it’s easy to understand why we’ve been missing AA’s regular service to Belize’s Philip Goldson International Airport, aka the PGIA.

And why we’re so happy to hear that American Air is resuming air service to Belize.

Also, as icing on the cake, starting November 16, AA is offering easy pre-flight coronavirus testing to Belize, Grenada, and St Lucia, making Belize’s new entry requirements even simpler than they already are.

American Airlines president Robert Isom recently announced that:

“Our initial pre-flight testing has performed remarkably well, including terrific customer feedback about the ease and availability of testing options.

“This next phase is an invigorating step forward in American’s relentless pursuit of reopening international travel and driving industry recovery while delivering a safe and positive travel experience.”

Music to our ears!

For this innovative pre-flight testing, AA has teamed up with LetsGetChecked, a company that offers at-home COVID PCR testing for passengers traveling to Belize and other select Caribbean destinations.

This means that people bound for Belize can now be PCR tested, along with a virtual visit with a medical professional, in the comfort of their homes.

Participants can then expect to receive their results within 48 hours – well within Belize’s 72-hour testing timeframe.

How’s that for easy, fast, efficient service?

American Airlines is currently offering flights to the PGIA from Miami (MIA), with additional service from Charlotte (CLT) and Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) expected begin in December.

Which is just in time for families, couples and individuals to enjoy Chaa Creek’s annual all-inclusive Belize Christmas vacations, healthy New Year’s celebrations, and the sorts of restorative rainforest idylls many folks could use right now.

Just think – after the trials and tribulations of 2020, it’s now possible to enjoy a Belize vacation that’s as easy, and easily just as safe, as a domestic holiday.

And easily just as affordable, with Chaa Creek’s all-inclusive Belize vacation packages offering everything for a completely satisfying rainforest vacation for one surprisingly low set price.
