(QCOSTARICA) The San Jose airport was re-opened shortly after noon today, the airport manager, Aeris, saying operations are back to normal. For now.

Although the airport is supposedly open, the Aeris website continues the “airport closed alert” and according to source close to the Q, they report no flights have taken off since the announcement.

All U.S. carriers cancelled their flights in and out of San Jose for today.

In addition, Avianca, the Colombian airline that operates two daily afternoon flights from Toronto to San Jose cancelled the flights. The morning flights to Toronto from San Jose were also cancelled.

According to a report by La Nacion before noon, some 12,000 passengers were directly affected by the airport closure today, with 52 inbound flights and 68 outbound cancelled.

The question which as been asked repeatedly¬† is why aren’t flights diverted to Costa Rica’s other international airport, the one in Liberia, Gunacaste.

I may have to do in part that the Liberia airport cannot handle the volume of passengers or aircraft. And then there is the cost of moving by land number of people and luggage, a logistics nightmare.

Important here is that if you have a flight to of from San Jose today or tomorrow, check with your airline before heading for the airport. Do not rely on websites or news reports, to be disappointed to find your particular flight cancelled or delayed.
