Qatar Airways Coming To Costa Rica

Friday 02 November 2012 | QNews


Qatar Airways, with a five star service of excellence will soon be landing in Costa Rica. The airline says that though establishing direct flights is almost impossible, there is a huge opportunity to capture tourism of some of the world’s richest Arabs.

The connections that would be used by Qatar to tranship passengers to and from Costa Rica could include Argentina, Brazil, US, Canada and maybe even Spain that has regular direct flights from Madrid to San José’s Juan Santamaría international airport.

The service is based on an agreement singed between representatives of the governments of Costa Rica and Qatar, making it the first such agremeent Costa Rica would sign with a Middle Eastern country.

The agreement would close the gap and promote Costa Rican tourism to Qatar and possible the rest of the Arab world.

Alan Flores, Costa Rica’s minister of Tourism is upbeat on Qatar making more than just flights into Costa Rica, but possibly operate routes within the country, referring to the Liberia airport in Guanacaste.

Air transport links are vital to an economy that focuses on tourism as an engine for economic development.
