Flights to Costa Rica will four times a week between the Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and the Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO).

The airline will also fly four times weekly to San Salvador ( El Salvador) and three times weekly flights to Managua (Nicaragua) and San Pedro Sula (Honduras).

Spirit Airlines made news when it repainted many of its aircraft in a bold and bright yellow pattern that makes their passenger jets look like big New York City taxis in the sky.

Editor’s note: The other day, looking up in the sky over the San José airport I mistook the Spirit plane for the DHL cargo. The differences are the DHL yellow is a little deeper and the cargo plane has no side windows.
