(QCOSTARICA) After two years of preparations, Air Costa Rica took to the skies on Wednesday. Well almost. The airline made its official presentation on Wednesday without being able to announce a final date for the start of daily flights to Guatemala.

For now the airline is saying it expects to start regular flights between next month (November 2016) and “before January 2017” because it has not yet received its air operator’s certificate from Guatemala Civil Aviation.
