The new flight is part of the efforts of the Costa Rican Tourism Board, the ICT, to attract more airlines to Costa Rica.

Europe is the third largest source market for tourists to Costa Rica. North America (US, Canada and Mexico) is first, followed by Central America.

According to ICT statistics, a total of 370,483 Europeans visited Costa Rica last year (2014). The number is low when compared to the 1,245,037 from North America. But is a significant sum compared with 138,138 South Americans or 27,592 Asians.
