According to United: “The additional flight allows us to support country initiatives in terms of dynamism. Additional to meet the strong demand from travelers looking to get to Houston earlier to make connections towards other US, European and Asian markets, ” says Salvador Marrero, Executive Director for Central United. “With this increase, United reinforces its position as the airline that offers the largest number of seats from Costa Rica to the United States.”

Last week, Southwest Airlines requested approval to fly to Costa Rica, as part of the airline’s expansion with routes to Mexico and Belize.

The Costa Rica flights, expected to begin in October 2015 if the airline obtains regulatory approval, will be between San José and the William P. Hobby Airport (HOU) in Houston.

Southwest Airlines plans to use 143-seat Boeing 737-700 jets like this one to fly to Costa Rica.
