Other airlines had already announced the closure of their operations in Costa Rica after the government announced the total closure of borders, are Panama’s Copa Airlines and Colombia’s Avianca.

“This is without a doubt the biggest crisis in the airline industry in history. The decisions we are making hurt us, they are extremely difficult, but we must be flexible and face the situation,” said Anko van der Werff, President and CEO of Avianca Holdings.

Avianca will only maintain domestic operations in Colombia.
