QCOSTARICA TRAVEL – The Venezuelan airline, Albatros Airlines, will begin on May 2 flights between San Jose and Caracas, Venezuela, confirms Costa Rica’s tourism board, the Instituto Costarricense de Turismo (ICT).

The flights will be on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, leaving the Simón Bolívar de Maiquetía (CCS) airport at 7:00am and arriving at the Juan Santamaria (SJO) – San Jose airport – at 10am. The flight to Caracas leaves an hour later.

The flights have a maximum of 112 passengers, 12 in first class.

Orlando Padilla, marketing director of Albatros Airlines told that Costa Rica is “an important destination”.

Padilla added that the growth of Venezuelan nationals in Costa Rica, mainly in Escazu and San Jose, and business travel was the motivation for the service.
