Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport in Liberia, Guanacaste received two new United Airlines routes this weekend from the metropolitan cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles, USA.
In addition, he served four flights that were suspended because of the KLM, Delta Airlines, West Jet and United Airlines pandemic.
The inaugural flight of UA Los Angeles – Liberia arrived on Friday 8th at 3.50pm while on Saturday 9th at 9.10pm the flight that will connect the Californian city of San Francisco with Guanacaste landed.
The routes that resumed operations are KLM from Amsterdam (Tuesday – Friday – Sunday), last January 5, and this Saturday January 9 Delta Airlines from Los Angeles; West Jet from the Canadian city of Calgary and United Airlines from Chicago.
“In each of these flights comes hope for Costa Rica, whose economic recovery on the coast and in rural areas is closely linked to tourism,” said Gustavo J. Segura, Minister of Tourism.
César Jaramillo, General Manager of CORIPORT, the airport administration company, expressed the effort they have made in alliance with the Government, to gradually reactivate the operations of this port of entry.
“Starting 2021 with the announcement of two new United flights is a great achievement as it connects us directly to the cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles, considered strategic focal points for the attraction of tourism. We maintain the application of strict health protocols that guarantee safe passenger and partner traffic,” added Jaramillo.
According to ICT studies, San Francisco and Los Angeles rank second and third in the “top 3” of large cities or metropolitan areas in the U.S. with the highest concentration of tourists interested in traveling to Costa Rica: tourists with the profile we are looking for, love of nature, culture and sustainability.
