Aerodromes in Belize

There are a total of thirty-six (36) aerodromes in Belize, consisting of sixteen (16) public and twenty (20) private. The BAA is charged with the administration of the local, public aerodromes.

The primary aerodromes under management are the Sir Barry Bowen Municipal Airport; Caye Caulker Municipal Airstrip; John Grief II Airport; Placencia Municipal Airstrip; Punta Gorda Municipal Airstrip; Pelican Beach Municipal Airstrip; Ranchito Municipal Airstrip, and His Excellency Alfredo Martinez Municipal Airstrip. The PSW Goldson International Airport is under contract to Belize Airport Concession Company; and therefore, its operation are not directly controlled by BAA, even though it is owned by the BAA.

As suggested above, the BAA essentially established to manage and administer prescribed airports, and provide all essential services and facilities necessary for the operations of said airports. While as a general statement, this may seem like a pretty straight forward responsibility, the BAA actually has a key role to play in the overall development of the civil aviation sector and the economic development of Belize especially as it relates to the BAA’s role in fee structures and charges for air navigation and the wide spectrum of airport services.
