The passenger, who traveled with her husband and four of her children, commented “I am very happy and surprised to have been passenger number 9 million. It is not my first time in Guanacaste, we come frequently because we love the destination and surf on the Guanacaste beaches. It was a lot of fun getting off the plane and getting this huge surprise.”

The Guanacaste Airport, with hard work that began last October, was able to recover all the airlines and routes operating prior to the pandemic, the majority from the United States, Canada and Europe.

In addition, in 2021 seven new routes and two new airlines were added.

This is how Guanacaste Airport, a member of the VINCI Airports network, has established itself as one of the terminals with the highest traffic recovery in the region, within its category of less than 2 million annual passengers.
