In addition, back to Liberia are fights from KLM, on Tuesday, January 5, resuming it four flights weekly (Tuesday – Thursday – Friday – Sunday) from Amsterdam (AMS); on Saturday, January 9, Delta Airlines arrived from Los Angeles, West Jet made its debut from Calgary (YYC), Canada, and United Airlines from Chicago (ORD).

“In each of these flights comes hope for Costa Rica, whose economic recovery on the coasts and in rural areas is closely linked to tourism,” said Gustavo J. Segura, Rector Minister of Tourism.

César Jaramillo, General Manager of CORIPORT, the Liberia airport’s concessionaire and member of the international network VINCI Airports, expressed the effort they have put into alliance with the Government to gradually reactivate the operations of that port of entry.

“Starting 2021 with the announcement of two new United flights is a great achievement because it connects us directly with the cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles, considered strategic focuses for attracting tourism,” said César Jaramillo.

“Costa Rica and particularly Guanacaste is one of the preferred destinations for international tourists, so United Airlines celebrates the opening of new routes from two cities as important economically and touristically for the country as San Francisco and Los Angeles” emphasized Carlos Granados, United’s Manager for Costa Rica.

According to ICT studies, San Francisco and Los Angeles occupy the second and third place in the “top 3” of the large cities or metropolitan areas of the United States with the highest concentration of tourists interested in traveling to Costa Rica, “tourists with the profile we are looking for, love for nature, culture and sustainability,” according to a study by the Costa Rican Institute of Tourism (ICT).
