Tuesday 06 November 2012 |QTravel

130,000 visitors from Canada entered the country this year, which makes them one of the main generators of tourism for Costa Rica.

Furthermore, Canada is the second biggest foreign exchange generated by tourism in Costa Rica, with $142 million last year.

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.

WestJet is a low-cost airline offering regular scheduled services to 81 destinations in North, America, Central America and the Caribbean. This airline provides jobs to 8,600 people and its fleet consists of 99 Boeing 737 aircrafts.

The sun was shining bright and a group of typical dancers from the University of Costa Rica (UCR) in Liberia were there to welcome them into the country.
