Central America from $221 applies only to Panama City, the rest of Central America, from San Jose to Guatemala, is more than double that.
Central America from $221 applies only to Panama City, the rest of Central America, from San Jose to Guatemala, is more than double that.

(TICO BULL) I am at a complete loss, maybe someone can explained it me. Looking over the latest Avianca Airlines special “Cyberlunes”, it is cheaper to fly from Colombia to everywhere than to San Jose, Costa Rica and Central America.

Let me give you some examples of return ticket prices. All price comparisons are for “economy”.(Screenshots are at the bottom)

From Colombia to North America: New York or Washington D.C. is $549. Dallas is $545, Miami and Fort Lauderdale $319 and Mexico City (deemed part of North America flights) $279.

To and from Central America, from Medellin or Bogotá to Panama City $221, yet to Guatemala $425, San Salvador $499, San Pedro Sula (Honduras) $499 and San Jose (Costa Rica) $469.

Yet, San Jose to Toronto (June 4 with a return on June 11) is $696. From Bogota to Toronto with a stop in San Salvador (and/or San Jose) on the same dates is $774.

Regular pricing is the same thing, Costa Rica and the rest of Central America is always more expensive. And the airline in most cases flying north (or on its way back to Colombia) makes a stop in Costa Rica.

An this pricing model is not only restricted to Avianca, Copa airlines does the same thing and usually within a few dollars in price difference.

How can this be?
