QCOSTARICA – KLM announced, this Monday, April 19, that it will reactivate its flights between the Netherlands and Costa Rica, starting on June 29.

KLM will resume flights between Amsterdam and Juan Santamaría and the Daniel Oduber airports on June 29.

The airline will make the Amsterdam-San José-Liberia-Amsterdam route on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, the Costa Rican Tourism Institute (ICT) reported.

Gustavo Segura, Minister of Tourism, explained that the airline anticipated its return to the country, as it not had planned to do so until next October.

“We celebrate the return of KLM and its commitment to Costa Rica. They increase the number of seats for the coming months and promote the arrival of Europeans to the country, whose average stay reaches up to 18 days,” Segura said.

The Minister added that the arrival, starting in June, coincides with the beginning of the European summer, while it is expected that there will be more Europeans vaccinated against covid-19 and willing to travel internationally.

The KLM announcement joins those made last week by Avianca and Frontier airlines.

Avianca will have a direct flight from Miami, in the United States; while Frontier, from Miami and from Orlando. Both will resume flights on July 1.

On the three weekly flights, KLM will first arrive at Juan Santamaría International Airport, or San Jose airport (SJO) at 1:05 pm and then leave for Liberia (LIR) at 2:45 pm and then head back to Amsterdam for a 4:40 pm departure, detailed the ICT.
