DOUBLING OF GOVERNMENT TAX REVENUE TOURIST INNOVATIVE IDEA!


INNOVATIVE IDEA TO DOUBLE BELIZE OVERNIGHT TOURIST VISITORS

Government people seem unable to develop innovative OUT THE BOX ideas for boosting the tourist business. I will put one such new idea out here. There are two airlines that I know serve Central America and Mexico with budget seats. These are Spirit Airlines and Blue something or other. So far, we cannot seem to get them to make Belize a destination. I don´t know what they are flying, probably a 737? Anyway, whatever, what I suggest we do is take all the Government money spent on travel vouchers by our government in a year, for all departments. Subsidize it by BTB revenues for the tourist business and offer either of these two airlines that offer cheap flights to our area, a guaranteed 10% of their seat capacity for one weekly flight per week. Perhaps a Saturday inbound and a Sunday outbound. Maybe only for high season periods, or some such money saving arrangement.
What the country needs is a guaranteed low airfare round trip ticket environment to boost our tourist economy. That of all things, is the number one item. It would double government tourist tax revenues and stimulate foreign and local investment. The government would then have the option of using those 10% of seats in a budget airline for bureaucrat travel on government business. Or leave them empty and the airline could fill them and receive a double profit from those seats, to boost their revenues. A WIN - WIN situation.
Spirit Airlines in this high winter season are offering for example a round trip airfare from Ft. Lauderdale to Guatemala City of $225.

We would be in Belize now instead of Cancun but Spirit offered 215 a ticket to Cancun. Lowest flight to Belize (no Spirit) about 700. We're in cancun, just blew $1200 on scuba certs, another $1000 site seeing and another $1000 in the casinos. Would have much rather gone to Belize.
