This is part of a series of blog entries on how to get to countries and places. Here is a link to the index. I plan to eventually cover every country and some other places. If you have a request for a particular country or place please use the email me link at top right, or leave a comment.
Visitors to Guatemala can arrive by ferry from Mexico, by bus from all neighbouring countries, or by air. Airlines flying to Guatemala include:
- Star Alliance - Continental
- Oneworld - American, Iberia, Mexicana
- Sky Team - Delta
- Other selected - most Central American airlines
TIP Some fares to Guatemala are common-rated with other Central American destinations. This means if there is a cheap fare advertised to say San Jose (Costa Rica) or Managua (Nicaragua) there may also be cheap fares to Guatemala City.
TIP The market is fairly competitive from many major US cities. When TACA has a sale other airlines typically match.
UPDATED November 2009 - Mexicana joins Oneworld and Continental switch from Sky Team to Star Alliance. No change to advice.
