Ticos Air, the new Costa Rican airline on Monday presented the relevant documentation to the Dirección General de Aviación Civil (Directorate General of Civil Aviation) for the certificate of operation of several international destinations.

The company says its goal is to fly first from Costa Rica to Mexico and then incorporate other routes.

Last May Avianca announced the elimination of five direct flights to Costa Rica and the layoff of 261 employees. The flights cancelled by Avianca were from San José to: Los Angeles, New York, Havana, Quito and Guayaquil.

Ticos Air, formed last December, now employs 22 people according to its Facebook profile.

Currently, for flights to Central America and Mexico City, Costa Ricans only have the option of Avianca and Copa, which offer similar prices.

If Ticos Air manages to get off the ground it would give Costa Ricans a third alternative and the expectation of pricing competition.
