United Continues Commercial flights to/from Costa Rica

Other airlines announced tentative dates to resume commerical service to and from the Juan Santamaria (SJO) international airport

(QCOSTRICA TRAVEL) Commercial flights to Costa Rica continue though the arrival of tourists is prohibited until June 15, and international flight arrivals are permitted only at the Juan Santamaria International (SJO) airport in San Jose.

United Airlines is currently offering service between Houston, Texas (IAH) and Costa Rica on May 29 and June 1, 3, 5, 8, 10, 12, and 15.

The incoming flights are called “repatriation flights” for only Costa Ricans and residents (who did not leave the country after March 24) are permitted entry.

But don’t expect prices to be cheap. For example, the lowest price of a one-way ticket for the May 29 flight is US$747, a little cheaper on Monday, June 1, US$637.

The outgoing flight (open to anyone who can enter the U.S. and can afford it), leaving the San Jose airport at 12 noon, is US$ 1,213. Again, cheaper for the June 1 flight, US$1,018.
