The Roatan international airport welcomes direct international flights from literally all over the world, so don’t be discouraged if you’re not located in the Americas. It typically depends on the time of year, but during the winter especially tourism is high, and multiple flights will depart and arrive every day. During the low season, at the end of summer and into September/October, you’ll be hard pushed to find super regular flights – but rest assured there are still some heading out, you just need to time it right.
Roatan is fairly easy to get to from a number of different international airports – and it doesn’t have to take a long time, either. Roatan’s airport, Juan Manuel Galvez International Airport receives flights throughout the year, from both domestic and international airlines.
If you’re travelling from the USA, you can use American Airlines out of Dallas or Miami, Delta Airlines out of Atlanta, or United Airlines from Houston. You’ll probably find that a lot of the West Coast airports will fly via Houston, or there’s the option to use the Avianca Airlines hub of San Salvador airport which will fly you to Roatan in less than an hour on any one of their daily flights.
If you’re travelling from Canada, there’s flights direct from Toronto or Montreal between late November through to April, and if you’re jetting off from any other points in Central America, you’re able to use Tropic Air direct from Belize City. San Salvador is a major hub for getting to Roatan, so you’ll find a lot of flights coming in to this airport from elsewhere on the American continents, before heading off to Roatan.
Direct flights from Europe will be a little more difficult to find, but you’ll typically find airlines flying from Madrid, Milan, and London flying into San Pedro Sula on the mainland, and from there you’ll be able to jump on a domestic flight straight overt to Roatan.
