Three European airlines will be resuming flights to Costa Rica soon, the first, Air France, on October 31st. They’ve been absent from the country for seven months, due to the covid-19 pandemic that left borders closed.
The first flight will arrive from Paris with 300 passengers. In December, the frequency will be increased to three times a week, on Saturdays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.
British Airways and KLM have also confirmed they are to resume flights between Europe and Costa Rica. They will do so in November, in time for the start of the high season.
By the end of October, just three months after reopening to commercial flights, there will already be 48 weekly operations.
Europe is a great market for tourists because of the population’s high educational level and appreciation for both nature and culture. The opening of new flights will contribute to the recovery of the tourism sector.
As of November 1, Costa Rica’s air borders will open to the whole world. Daily updates can be found at https://sjoairport.com/reporte-operaciones/
