Reopening of Caye Caulker Airport

Belize Airports Authority proudly announces the rehabilitation and grand reopening of Caye Caulker Airport!

Caye Caulker, a radiant jewel in the heart of Belize, extends its warm embrace to visitors from across the globe. With its captivating marine wonders, vibrant culture, and the renowned ‘Go Slow’ mantra, Caye Caulker stands as a magnetic destination for global travelers seeking a unique and unforgettable experience.

In an unwavering commitment to safely connect Belize’s treasures with the global community, significant enhancements have been introduced at Caye Caulker Airport. A pivotal aspect of this transformation involved the excavation of a substantial portion of the runway, facilitating the integration of a resilient cement-treated base. This meticulously crafted foundation, composed of native soils, aggregates, cement, and water, aligns seamlessly with global transportation standards, ensuring durability for years to come.

Precision was paramount throughout the project, with topographical surveys conducted to guarantee accuracy. Elevation markers, strategically placed, were complemented by rigorous compaction tests, creating optimal conditions for seamless aircraft operations.

The subsequent phase witnessed the dedicated Belize Airports Authority team executing the application of Hot Mix Asphalt with diligence, working tirelessly day and night to ensure the highest quality of the runway.

Concluding this transformative endeavor, the runway and apron now boast distinct and vibrant markings, a testament to the Belize Airports Authority’s unwavering attention to detail. This well-marked path not only ensures safe landings and take-offs but also prioritizes the safety of our travelers and facilitates the secure and efficient transportation of goods, solidifying Caye Caulker’s pivotal role as a transportation hub.

For the Caye Caulker community, this isn’t just an upgraded airport; it’s a gateway to safe travels, remarkable adventures, and a thriving tourism industry, inviting the world to experience the unparalleled beauty of Caye Caulker.

The Belize Airports Authority extends heartfelt gratitude to every hand and mind involved in this venture. As we set our sights on the future, the Belize Airports Authority remains resolute in its commitment to improving and sustaining high aviation infrastructure standards throughout Belize.

See you in Caye Caulker!
