QTRAVEL – With the new year underway, why not resolve to take a vacation this year? Southwest Airlines is helping its customers turn this resolution into reality! Beginning April 2016, the airline is offering nonstop service from Los Angeles International to Liberia (LIR), Costa Rica.
The airline said it expects to operate the service daily from LAX Terminal 2 to the Daniel Oduber International airport.
Known for its natural beauty, travelers to this part of the world will be able to post Facebook photos showcasing their adventurous, nature loving side. Places like the volcanic hot springs, a safari attraction known as “Africa Mia,” the numerous waterfalls, as well as outdoor restaurants serving gallo pinto, the national dish, will remind you that you are in a paradise far from home…but not too far.
“This new link for our customers in the LA Basin to Costa Rica’s growing resort and ecotourism region will bring to the market a value only Southwest can offer with bags fly free, no change fees, and low fares, all alongside our famously friendly Customer Service,” said Andrew Watterson, Southwest Airlines Senior Vice President of Network & Revenue Management.
“Our list of opportunities is long and Liberia, Costa Rica is just the beginning of the international destinations we plan to offer from LAX,” Watterson said
Southwest currently offers from Liberia two departures a day to 2 cities, Baltimore (MD-BWI) and Houston (Hobby – HOU).
