(QCOSTARICA) In a growing market, 16 commercial air companies operate  in Costa Rica an average of four to five corporate flights a day. Having a wide range of routes and destinations is no longer enough for charter airlines to fill their flights in Costa Rica.

helicopterProviding a flight with value added services, such as alliances with hotels and transport services in the areas surrounding airports is one of the elements with which airlines that offer charter flights to businesses and tourists are aiming to differentiate themselves.

- Advertisement - says, today, the charter market is not only for international tourists, but also has seen an increase of Costa Ricans users, according to the companies.

For example, explains, “… some of the services that make airlines be better positioned in the market are access to wi-fi in the hangar, greater luggage capacity, allowing pets on board, international insurance and accessibility when boarding the plane. ”

“The profile of national users is an executive or entrepreneur for whom time is valuable. So much so that if you compare the cost-benefit ratio, it is more convenient to move air than to do so by land, allowing to attend meetings or to follow-up on their projects outside the Greater Metropolitan Area (GAM) of San Jose, ” said Mario Villatoro, director of operations of Aero Caribe.

Villatoro added the “taboo” about high prices and instability of services is in the past.


“… In the case of tourists, airlines say favorite destinations are Santa Teresa, Playa Hermosa and Conchal, while Liberia and Tamarindo remain a favourite for executives and professionals.” These routes are growing a lot because of the real estate development in the area'”, said Everardo Carmona, general manager of Carmonair to

Other airlines, such as Sansa and Nature Air, also offer charter flights, although less frequently.

In the San Jose area, charter flights operate out of the Juan Santamaria international and Tobias Bolaños (Pavas) airports.
