Although terminals have been open to receive foreign flights since August 1, this applies to flights from certain countries only: the European Union, Great Britain, and Canada, for now. Six U.S. airlines have requested permission to fly into Costa Rica starting in the next quarter.
American Airlines, United Airlines, Alaska Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Spirit Airlines, and Volaris Airlines are managing permit procedures to resume commercial flights to Costa Rica as soon as possible.
They seek permission to arrive at both the Juan Santamaria International Airport and the Daniel Oduber Quiros Airport. For the time being, the United States is excluded from entering Costa Rica to avoid covid-19 infections.
There are currently just five commercial flights coming into the country weekly, three from Madrid and two from Frankfurt. In September, Air Canada will offer a weekly flight from Toronto and a weekly flight back to Toronto.
Although the U.S. Government advised citizens not to travel to 20 Latin American and Caribbean nations, including Costa Rica, airlines in the U.S. are making plans for when this changes.
