The End Of LACSA’s Hub

Posted on Updated on

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica–AviancaTACA announced today the cancellation of five flights to the San Jose hub: Los Angeles, New York-JFK, Havana, Monterrey, Quito and Guayaquil.  Effective tomorrow passengers will need to use the El Salvador or Bogota hubs when flying from any of these cities (except Monterrey that is being totally cancelled). The Costa Rican airline LACSA started a flight connection hub in the late 1970s that included flights from Miami, New Orleans, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York-JFK and Toronto. After the merger with TACA some of these cities were cancelled transfering the operations to El Salvador. WIth the merger of TACA and Avianca of Colombia, the Costa Rican hub will be minimized transfering most of the non-stop flights to El Salvador, Bogota and Lima.

The Juan Santamaria International Airport was the original LACSA hub since the late 1970s. After the merger with TACA and Avianca the hub will be minimzed.
