Cheap Airline Tickets To Guatemala | Flights to Guatemala City

Updated on July 20, 2012

Cheap Flights From the US to Guatemala City

Some of the lowest airfares to Latin America are being offered on flights to Guatemala booked in February and March. There are very cheap flights to Guatemala being offered for flights in March. The best city to fly to Guatemala from is Miami. Right now, TACA have the cheapest flights to Guatemala that I have seen in some time. For example, a flight from Miami to Guatemala City with TACA in February/March could be booked for only $188 round-trip ($278 after taxes and fees). This was a direct flight. The flight time from Miami to Guatemala City is only 2 hours and 40 minutes.

It is not just out of Miami that you will find these low airfares. Even in New York where the flight is much longer you can still get amazing prices. For the same travel date in March, a flight could be booked from New York (JFK) to Guatemala City (GUA) for only $316 ($402 after taxes and fee's).

This was a one stop flight on COPA Airlines. COPA Airlines is a Panama based airline and its Latin American destinations are all routed through its Panama City hub and then on to connecting destinations.

In Los Angeles, LACSA (a partner of TACA based out of San Jose, Costa Rica) has direct flights to GUA for $360 ($446 after taxes and fee's). Delta Airlines is also offering direct flights to Guatemala City for under $400.

Direct Flights to Guatemala from the US

The lowest airfares to Guatemala from the US are generally the non-stop flights right now. This is because of the high level of competition on flights to GUA at the moment. TACA has been very aggressive in it's pricing, which you can see by the low airfare from Miami. Other examples of cheap direct flights to Guatemala City are from Houston, Texas George Bush International Airport (IAH). United Airlines have non-stop flights for $400 ($485 after taxes and fees) in March which is the lowest airfare to Guatemala from Houston, Texas. TACA have a flight from Houston as well for the exact same price, but it has a stop in El Salvador.

Direct Flights From Europe to Guatemala City

Iberia airlines started adding many new flights to Central America in 2010. Flights from Europe to Guatemala City connect in Iberia's Madrid hub and fly direct to Guatemala. This is making air travel to Central America and more notably Guatemala, much easier for European travellers. I single out Guatemala as an improved flight, because air passengers flying with Iberia to El Salvador will need to make a stop here first before continuing on to El Salvador. While they are raising the awareness of these new routes, European travellers can benefit from the cheap airline tickets.

Iberia have been running some great promotions to Central America. For example, if you live in the UK, you can fly from London to Guatemala with Iberia for as low as 612 pounds which already includes taxes and fees. The flight from London connects in Madrid and then you fly direct to Guatemala City from Madrid, Spain.

Cheap One Way Airline Tickets to Guatemala

Spirit Airlines who are known in the airline industry as the ultra deep discount carrier also fly to Guatemala out of their hub in Fort Lauderdale. Regardless of your departure city, you will have a stop in Fort Lauderdale. All of their flights to Latin America are routed through Fort Lauderdale first.

Spirit Airlines price their airfares based on each direction of the air travel. This can work to your advantage if you plan to break up your journey and only want to book a one way flight to Guatemala. The average one way price is $119 before taxes and fee's. A word of caution here though. Like most countries, Guatemala require proof of onward passage when coming into the country. The airlines are heavily fined if they allow a passenger onto a flight into the destination country without the passenger having onward passage. So if you plan to travel into Guatemala with a one way ticket, you will need to have then next leg of your journey booked and have proof of that when you arrive at the airport in the US. Without proof of onward passage, they will not let you onto the flight. This is not just for Spirit Airlines, this is the policy of all of the airlines.

I hope you are successful in finding a great price on your flight to Guatemala. If you become aware of a better priced ticket than any mentioned here in this article, please share in the comments section below. Thanks and happy travels.
