QCOSTARICA – Southwest Airlines has announced it will be operating a daily flight between San José, Costa Rica and the cities of Baltimore and Houston.

The daily flights from Baltimore will start March 7, flights from Houston later this year (October), pending final approval.

The US carrier Southwest Airlines is not only backing Costa Rica having selected it as the first destination in Central America in which has ventured, (being the first choice for an international flight with the Southwest brand), but has also done so forcefully, with the announcement of two new air routes.

According to Costa Rica President Luis Guillermo Solis, the move by Southwest Airlines strengthens the position of Costa Rica as an attractive destination for investment and tourism development.

“The United States represents the greatest tourism market for Costa Rica with an average stay of 10.4 nights per visit into our country. Visitors and repeat visitors’ numbers to Costa Rica have risen from 10.2 million in 2001 to 17.6 million in 2013, so Southwest Airlines’ new route will only supplement and strengthen our tourism market,” said Wilhelm von Breymann, Costa Rica’s minister of tourism.
