Airlines have been key to the recovery of air traffic. For example, American Airlines added the route from Austin at the beginning of the year, increased the number of daily flights from Miami to three and to daily from Dallas Fort Worth.

For its part, United Airlines went from a weekly flight from Denver, Colorado and Newark, New Jersey to twice a week. Meanwhile, Jet Blue offers four weekly flights on its route from New York’s JFK airport.

Regarding the domestic traffic that uses the terminal, it also shows an increase. Indices from 2022 report that, as of September of this year, the number of visitors who used the Guanacaste Airport in 2019 had been exceeded.

The airport currently has 15 international airlines. Beginning in November, with the start of peak tourist season, there will be increased frequencies and the opening of a new route,  Frontier from Atlanta.

“We are proud of these numbers and these very encouraging figures. The trend began last March and has continued even during the low season. This is the result of strategic work in the development of routes and positioning of Guanacaste as a vacation destination,” said César Jaramillo, General Manager of Guanacaste Airport.
