Maya Island Air (also known as Maya Airways) is an airline with its head office in Belize City Municipal Airport in Belize City, Belize.

The airlines operate regularly scheduled flights to over 10 destinations within Belize and chartered flights to Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras. Its main base is the Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport.

The airline was founded in 1962 originally as Maya Airways. In 1989, Island Air began providing similar airline services to San Pedro and Belize City. The need for air services grew, therefore, Maya Airways and Island Air planned a negotiation to merge and eventually become the most successful merger in the travel industry. In 1997, both airlines had merged to create Maya Island Air.

The airlines hold 13 aircraft in its fleet, offering scheduled services in Belize, Guatemala and Honduras.
