Which airlines now fly Guatemala-Flores? I remember that four or five did, e.g. TACA, Rasca, TAG, etc (in my June 2004 OAG book, one airline, which I can't remember, operated the B11 on the route), but I'm not sure who currently does.

Cheers.

TAG still flies LETS on the route 3x/day. They don't operate from the main terminal at GUA though. Rather, they use their own terminal/hangar on the airfield's southside near the DHL facility.

TikalJets used to operate the BAC-111s on this route but they were later replaced with DC-9's. Unfortuntely, TikalJets ceased ops last August.

TACA picked up these routes from when Aviateca mergerd into the TACA Group. I flew on the Tikal Jets to Flores when they were still using props.The bus ride from Guatemala City to Flores is at least 10 to 12 hours.

Right. There was a thread last year that included an article about their ceasing of operations.

Actually, the ATR flight (which continues to CUN) operates 4x a week; the other two are dailies.

That's right... also, RACSA is flying a Saab 340, I think it's one daily but I'd have to check.

It's around 8 hours, actually. When I last visited Tikal in 2005, the drive back home took us 7 hours. Big grin
