Maya Island Air

Maya Island Air was founded in 1962 under the name Maya Airways, and it is Belize’s top domestic commercial airline. The airline operates more than 250 scheduled flights each day with 13 aircraft serving destinations in Belize. They also offer charter flights to Guatemala and Honduras. Maya Island Air operates smaller aircraft, which means you can’t bring as much cabin baggage as you might with other airlines. Please read below for information about their carry on luggage size allowances.
