"[Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport] was named for politician Phillip Stanley Wilberforce Goldson, who died in 2001. The airport will be going through major expansions such as the lengthening of the runway, expanding of the apron and expansion of the terminal. These expansions are made mainly to handle more planes and for the airport to bring in flights from Europe. The expansions are planned to be completed in time for 2015.

"Philip S. W. Goldson is at an altitude of 16 ft and this means that both the airport and the entirety of Belize City are at risk of serious flooding due to its low elevation and coastal location. For this reason, Belize's capital has been moved to Belmopan, but Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport remains the largest and busiest in the country.

"Philip S. W. Goldson is about 30 minutes drive from Belize City's centre, in Ladyville. The best way to get to and from the city centre is via taxi. Although an airport bus service exists, it is very infrequent and unreliable."
