Costa Rica News – If you are living in Canada and want to an inexpensive Canadian flight to Costa Rica you will be able to this October. Westjet, a low cost airline from Canada, will fly to Liberia starting in late October on a regular basis.
The firm will serve the route twice a week confirmed by Luis Carlos Araya, Deputy Air Transport. Araya hopes that the approval for the airline does not exceed the month.
He added that the arrival of this new airline to the country is part of the open skies agreement, which took effect in August last year.
Westjet has had a charter flight (seasonal) for several years between the two destinations, but a month ago the Canadian government authorized it to fly between both countries, confirmed Allan Flores, Minister of Tourism.
He added that approval came after a meeting of senior representatives of the Instituto Costarricense de Turismo with the top executives of the airline, Aug. 5, in the city of Calgary, Canada.
Flores said the Costa Rican government pledged to support it with Westjet tourism promotion and marketing, as well as the declaration of tourism contract, which will allow the airline to avoid the jet fuel tax.
