TODAY COSTA RICA – Original text published in La Nacion on June 23, 1971 – A conflict over air routes, has been unleashed between the Panamanian Aviation Company (COPA) and Costa Rican Airlines (LACSA).

The Costa Rican airline, on the occasion of having acquired another jet plane, wanted to expand its operations towards South America and for that purpose requested from Panama permission to operate four flights a week, two with its own airplane and two with airplane rented from the Venezuelan airline Viasa.

Although COPA has all the freedoms in our country for its operations, in Panama it has requested the Board of Aviation from its country that the right to LACSA not be granted, because it would mean “deep losses” for them.

Both LACSA and the travel agencies and the Government of Costa Rica have already intervened so that this right is granted to the national airline with a character of reciprocity, but the denial by COPA remains, so serious that a conflict was created.
