    Belize Airports Authority, Belize’s foremost provider of aerodrome services.

    About Us - Background


    The Belize Airports Authority operates under the governance of a Board of Directors, which oversees strategic direction. Day-to-day operational responsibilities are managed by a General Manager, supported by administrative and technical staff. This strategic framework provides essential guidance and focus for the institution, offering a clear roadmap with measurable performance metrics. These metrics are used to develop Annual Work Plans & Budgets, ensuring alignment with organizational goals and legal mandates.

    To effectively monitor and evaluate institutional performance, annual activities must align with the objectives and outputs outlined in the 2014-2017 Strategic Plan. Any deviation from this plan requires approval from the Board and should not be solely determined by the management team. Activities that do not visibly and measurably contribute to strategic objectives should not receive funding from the institution.

    The Belize Airports Authority (BAA), established under the BAA Act Chapter 238 Laws of Belize, is entrusted with the management and administration of designated aerodromes. Our mandate encompasses the provision of essential services and facilities crucial for the efficient operations of aerodromes across Belize.

    With a pivotal role in Belize’s development landscape, the BAA focuses on the continual enhancement of aerodrome infrastructure while prioritizing safety for all stakeholders. Our commitment to excellence underscores every aspect of our operations, ensuring a seamless experience for all users of Belize’s aviation facilities.
