Avianca, which owns the routes of TACA and LACSA, announced the suspension of direct flights between San José and Miami. The airline says it offers passengers two options daily through its hub in San Salvador.
Claudia Arenas, director of corporate affairs at the Colombian airline, said the decision is based on profitability and the ability of providing quality service.
Passengers affected by the change will be offered the new route or can choose a full or partial refund, according to the statement by Arenas.’
In May last year, the airline suspended direct flights between San José and Los Angeles, New York, Havana (Cuba), Quito (Ecuador) and Guayaquil (Ecudador). Those cities are all served through the San Salvaodr hub.
Costa Rica’s Dirección General de Aviación Civil (Directorate General of Civil Aviation) said the airline implemented the change without notice.
