QCOSTARICA – The Turriabla volcano once again had an impact travel in Costa Rica, the Sunday night eruption affecting at least five flights attempting to take off from the San Jose airport in the early hours of Monday.

The volcano erupted at 9:10pm Sunday.

The ashfall resulted in the cancellation of five flights between 2:15am and 5:15am this morning (Monday): one flight by Condor, one by Copa, two by Avianca and one by DHL.

From 5:15am airport operations at the Juan Santamaria Interantional (SJO) returned to normal, the airport manager, Aeris, said in a statement.

If you are travelling today (or in the near future), from or to Costa Rica, best is to check with your airline for the status of your flight. Information on airport operations and flights is also available at the Aeris website.

Last week, a series of eruptions on Monday closed the San Jose airport for almost 24 hours, from shortly after noon on Monday to before noon on Tuesday, cancelling dozens of flights and directly affecting more than 12,000 passengers.

Important to note that a volcano eruption itself does not affect airport operations in San Jose, rather the winds blowing ash in a westerly direction (towards the airport and Pacific coast).

This morning, many in the Central Valley reported falling ash and sulfur odor, more intense in the area of Coronado, Moravia, San Isidro (Heredia), San Rafael de Heredia and Getsemani de Heredia, according to the Observatorio Vulcanológico y Sismológico de Costa Rica (Ovsicori) – national volcanological and seismological observatory.
