Flying directly to the international airport of Belize near Belize City can be quite expensive. An alternative can be to fly into Cancun, Mexico (which can be considerably cheaper) and taking a bus into Belize. The bus trip to Belize City takes around 7 hours to complete. The bus is driving through Corozal District and you have the possibility to exit the bus there to be able to stay in that district for a while.


When booking flights from Europe, all options appear to contain a transfer in the United States. Flights to Belize City then appear to depart from Houston or Atlanta. Transfers in the United States are not ideal, as you often have a transfer time of 20 hours or more (i.e., the flight you needed to take had only just departed prior to you landing, and there is only one flight per day). 
 
Within Belize, there are several local airlines. Namely Maya Island Air and Tropic. These airlines operate small aircraft and only fly within Belize (they do not fly to Belize), while they are due to safety reasons not allowed to fly internationally.
