“In 2006 Costa Rica had only an indirect flight to Europe; At present, there are eight airlines offering flights between Europe and Costa Rica, seven of them directly and one with a stop, which is evidence of the great leap that has taken our country as a result of its strategy in attracting airlines”, Minister Revelo said.
