Correos says that the departure of postal cargo is three times a week according to the itinerary of the airlines and that little by little, as demand increases, the service will normalize.

Correos de Costa Rica business manager, Oscar Calderon, explained:

“In recent months, international restrictions and the suspension of services by commercial airlines affected shipments to other countries.

“Fortunately, after the opening of the borders in our country, the airlines began to increase the frequency of their flights and with this the availability of space for the transfer of cargo.

“At the moment we have flights three times a week according to the airline’s itinerary, we hope soon to have access to the necessary resource to process shipments to other countries and thus normalize the service”.
