At present, domestic flights within Guatemala are fairly limited. The only regularly scheduled flights travel between Guatemala City and Flores, with a flight time of about 45 minutes. There are, however, ongoing improvements to many airports around the country – including those at Quetzaltenango, Huehuetenango, Retalhuleu, and Puerto San José – and it’s hoped that there will be a good network of local flights in the coming years.
The only airline with domestic service in Guatemala is TACA, which operates out of a private carrier in Guatemala City’s La Aurora International Airport (GUA). Most flights between Guatemala City and Flores are on small planes, and airfare can be expensive. Even so, domestic flights can be a good option for travelers with a limited timeframe.
