Doc. 2.63.1. The VIP Edit

The British Airways ‘VIP’ round-trip flight was initiated in 1991, following the completion of the Paradise Transoceanic Air Terminal, to provide regular commuter service between the territory and London (Heathrow). Though originally envisioned as a daily flight, cost constraints soon limited the service to three flights per week. Thus all business travellers not wishing to spend much more time (and much more money) on slower means of travel must plan appointments in accordance with the VIP schedule; the briefest possible business trip to the islands would be of 49 hours (from scheduled arrival to scheduled departure).

One stop is made for refueling at Independence International at Belize City (Independence).

The VIP is frequently used by tourists as well, typically as part of a comprehensive tour package sponsored in part or in full by British Air.

Other regular flights connect the islands with Sydney, Vancouver, Tokyo, Auckland and San Diego.

Local arrival and departure times (London, Belize, BPI) are given in bold face.
