Canadian airline WestJet opened direct service on Monday to Costa Rica, with service from Toronto Pearson International Airport to Daniel Oduber Airport in Liberia.

WestJet will fly direct twice a week, Mondays and Saturdays, and therefore add 34,528 extra seats a year round trip, the Costa Rican Tourism Institute (ICT) calculated.

The first WestJet flight arrived at the Daniel Oduber Quirós Airport in Liberia, Guanacaste around 12 noon on Monday.

The capacity of the aircraft came complete with 160 tourists.
