But the decision won’t be quick. Pleshakova said the decision will be made in 2015.

The interest of Russian airlines comes after last month’s announcement by Costa Rica authorities to eliminate the visa requirement for Russian nationals.

The elimination of visas is to increase Russian tourism and investments to Costa Rica. Russian nationals will have a maximum stay of 30 days as a tourist and can be extended to 90 days.
