BEIJING — Tunisian air tickets are cheaper than air travel in Belize, according to a report by the news website AirFly.
The news site also published an article from Uzbekistan, saying air travel is cheaper in the nation.
Tutu Muhamed, who manages airfare booking for AirFly, told ABC News that the travel agency’s website offers a discounted airfare for Belizeans traveling to other African nations, including Algeria, Nigeria, and Ethiopia.
Muhamed said Belizeis could get an airfare of $300 or less.
He said airfare from other African countries can run up to $800.
Muhame said Belizedans can book through the website and receive an air fare from other countries that they can then book online through their airline.
He added that airfare could also be booked online for a few more cents.
The website offers discounts for travelers who book online.
Belize has been in economic turmoil since the collapse of the previous government in 2014, which was dominated by Islamists.
Belize has seen the collapse in tourism due to the lack of economic opportunities, Muhame told ABC news.
