COPA and Southwest Airways have mentioned they can’t function in Belize till subsequent yr as a consequence of their very own monetary points, and American Airways had indicated they might not be able to restart till August 18 if they might not go on July 1.
Now, American has responded to the delay in reopening the PGIA by warning, based on the Prime Minister, that “if you do delay the airport reopening to September, [we] cannot provide a firm date of when we would resume service. We are currently in the midst of cutting capacity out of our September and October schedules. We therefore may end up cancelling this market longer term in the event that the closure extends past our currently planned resumption of August 18. So there we are.” It did categorical sympathy over the rise in COVID-19 instances.
