It previously served San Jose until March 1998 offering a three times weekly triangle flight combined with Panama City flown by a McDonnell Douglas MD-11 in its last season of operation (winter 1997/1998).

“KLM currently brings many passengers to Costa Rica via Panama. The increasing interest of the European market in this beautiful country convinced us to start a direct flight to San José,” said Pieter Elbers, president and chief executive officer, KLM.

Toursm data from 2015 shows that arrivals into Costa Rica from Europe grew 6.1% versus the previous year to almost 400,000 annual visitors with the Netherlands being the sixth largest European source market after Germany, Spain, France, UK and Italy.

“This new flight, not only will facilitate visits to our country, but also thanks to KLM´s global network, this route will serve as a liaison for Costa Rica to open its doors to tourists from all Europe. This will for sure strengthen tourism in our country, generating benefits to the more than 600,000 persons who work in this activity in direct and indirect manner, and to the communities that find in tourism their opportunity to grow,” confirmed Luis Guillermo Solís, president of Costa Rica.

KLM joins growing the list of one-stop options from San Jose to Europe, that include British Airways (London), Iberia (Madrid), Air France (Paris) and Condor (Frankfurt).

The flight will leave from Amsterdam – Schiphol at 3:25pm and arrive in San Jose at 8:05pm.
