The Philip Goldson International Airport had the pleasure of greeting President Enrique Peña Nieto of México today as he visited Belize for Bilateral Meeting with the Prime Minister of Belize Rt. Hon. Dean Barrrow and a meeting of Foreign Ministers of CARICOM.
The President’s delegation arrived in Boeing’s newest commercial plane, the 787-8 Dreamliner with Mexican colors on her tail, bearing registration number XC-MEX. While it is the first time that President Peña has visited Belize, it is also the first time Boeing’s 787-8 has landed at BZE ,which created quite a stir with our staff and fellow aviation enthusiasts.
We managed to get a few exterior photos as the Dreamliner awaited her crew and passengers. While we didn’t get an inside tour, you can view those details here.
Hopefully President Peña visits Belize sometime soon. Belize loves our northern neighbors and we also enjoy hosting his Dreamliner.
Here are a couple more photos we were able to take.
