Posted on

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica–By the end of 2014 and beginning of 2015 new airlines will start services to Costa Rica. One new airline will start flights from California informed Marc Bourreau, a consultant of the Costa Rican Tourism Board. The airline was not mentioned but analysts believe could be Alaska Airlines or Virgin America.  The other flight will connect Paris with San Jose via the Dominican Republic, most likely XL Airways that already operates from Charles de Gaulle to Punta Cana. The Costa Rican Tourism Board presented May 7th a detailed document with all the accomplishements of the past four years in regards to connectivity of Costa Rica with the world. At the moment San Jose’s Juan Santamaria International Airport is serviced by 16 airlines and Liberia’s Daniel Oduber International Airport is serviced by 11 carriers. The Costa Rican government through the ICT (Costa Rican Tourist Board) with the support of AERIS and Coriport have been making initial contacts with airlines such as Alaska Airlines, Southwest, Allegiant, Eastern Airlines, XL Airways, GOL, TAME,  Transaero Airlines and Aeroflot in the last months pursuing future services to both international airports. Effective May 8th a new president takes over and the new Minister of Tourism, Wilhem von Breymann will be in charge of luring more airlines to Costa Rica, still the powerhouse of tourism in Central America.
