Although the largest and busiest airport in Belize, this airport has been considered to be a smaller airport in regards to international standard with limited flights arriving each day from nearby destinations. This is all going to change as there are massive expansions taking place which are expected to be completed in 2015 These massive expansions will increase the number of runways, improved the terminals and will increase both the capacity of flights and passengers. In the future we should see flights from all over the world including Europe and Africa hit the runways of the Philip S.W Goldson International Airport.

Overall this airport serves its purpose for anyone who wished to use it. This being said, the future of this airport looks bright with the awaited completion of the expansion. So anyone who wishes to travel to Belize City or wants to use this airport for a layover, I am sure that you will be satisfied.
