Honduras reports increased direct air service from North America

Honduran Institute of Tourism has reported that Spirit Airlines offers non-stop flights from Fort Lauderdale and Houston to Honduras, the government said.

Honduras is one of the few countries in Central America to have two direct flights coming from the US, granting one Central American country a competitive advantage for greater connectivity and accessibility in its fares. Since Spirit established air service to San Pedro Sula, the airline has transported more than 350,000 passengers.

In expanding their routes to Central America, Spirit accompanies American Airlines, Delta Airlines, Avianca, and United Airlines in offering direct non-stop service or connecting cities through Miami and Dallas (American and Avianca), Atlanta (Delta) and Houston (United & Spirit), making the Mayan archaeological site of Copán even closer.

Along with American airlines, Canadian tourist companies have sought to expand their service to Honduras through Transat Tours, a Canadian tour operator. Beginning in December 2016, they plan to add direct flights from Quebec City to the island of Roatán, Honduras.
