Canjet Begins Flights to Honduras December 24th
23 December, 2009

It seems almost a Christmas gift for the people of La Ceiba this year, that Canjet Airlines will begin service to the city from Toronto, Canada on December 24th.

The new commercial flight, aboard a Boeing 737-800 with a capacity of 180 passengers, will service La Ceiba, Tela, and the Bay Islands.

Airport manager, Edgardo Maradiaga in Honduras, is happy to see this type of operation that is bound to promote and encourage tourism in the Honduran Caribbean.

“Several months ago we began an offensive to bring several large and small commercial airlines into the country, so we’ve created market incentives that pique the interest of the executives of these airlines,” said Maradiaga.

With the addition of Canjet, there are now two new airlines arriving in La Ceiba since last June. Cayman Airways already began operations with a flight every Monday. The airport manager explained that in response to the high season, Cayman Airways expanded its route to La Ceiba with an additional flight on Thursdays beginning in October of this year.

“Two flights a week, Monday and Thursday, flying an average of 75 to 90 passengers, shows that we are reaping the benefits of what we have done, and that Honduras is still the best destination Central America,” said the executive.
