Southwest indicated that as of March 9, 2023, it will fly twice a week (Saturday and Sunday) to the Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO); and, as of Saturday, March 11, 2023, the Denver-San José flight will open the Denver-San Jose flight.

On March 9, 2023, the airline will double the Baltimore and Denver flight to the Guanacaste airport (LIR).

“We are on the right path, our mission as an Institution is to reach the (arrival) numbers of 2019 in 2023 and we will only achieve that if the airlines enable more seats to Costa Rica and if we diversify the offer of products and services. The news that Southwest is doubling its offer to Costa Rica is then music to our ears and to the country in general,” said Tourism Minister William Rodríguez.

Southwest has been flying to Costa Rican since 2015 and has been a strategic ally for connectivity in the country ever since.

The United States remains solid as the main source market for tourists to Costa Rica.

According to ICT data, during the first seven months of this year (January to July) the country received 819,548 American tourists by air.
