Costa Rica’s Civil Aviation approved the request of the Emirates Airlines and Jetblue Airways, for the operation of flights under the figure of shared code between San José and Dubai, via points in the United States.

Costa Rica, “one stop to Dubai” will be the center of the promotion of the country and a tourist destination. Emirates Airlines facilitates the connection of Costa Rica with the Middle and Far East and Africa.

Emirates is one of the most sophisticated airlines in the world, flying with its fleet of 244 aircraft, all Airbus 380 or Boeing 777-300, to more than 160 countries directly or in shared flight. The company uses the Dubai International Airport as a base of operations.

The Dubai International Airport airport, base of operations for Emirates, with 78 million travelers last year, will provide Costa Rica with a direct connection from Dubai to the markets and destinations of the Middle and Far East and Africa and will open an important niche for tourism attraction and investments for the country.

The UAE has shown interest in Costa Rica. Since 2010, an air services agreement was negotiated and a Memorandum of Understanding was signed.

Under the codeshare agreement, passengers by way of Jetblue’s Orlando – San Jose, New York – Liberia and Fort Lauderdale – San José can connect to Emirates five weekly flights from Dubai to Fort Lauderdale, five weekly flights from Dubai to Orlando and a daily flight from Dubai to JFK airport in New York.

Vice President and Chancellor, Epsy Campbell Barr, expressed her satisfaction with the news.

“I am particularly pleased to know that the work developed by the Costa Rican Embassy in the United Arab Emirates, our officials in the Foreign Ministry and the Costa Rican Tourism Institute (ICT) has paid off. We show that there is inter-institutional capacity to work successfully in the benefit of the country. Economic diplomacy is an important development tool for the progress of our society,” she said.

For her part, the Minister of Tourism, Maria Amalia Revelo Raventós, stressed that “this is the first step of a long road that awaits us for the opening of the Middle East market and destinations beyond. We are hopeful that in the medium term we will begin to venture into the different markets with actions that are effective and that promote the trips of both the Middle East and of already identified destinations of connection such as India, South Africa, Australia and some parts of Asia “, sHe said
