Two Airlines Offer New Flights

June 1, 2007

U.S. travelers to Costa Rica now have a wider selection of flights thanks to two budget airlines, Frontier and Spirit, recently creating new routes here.

Frontier Airlines has announced it will begin flying from the U.S. city of Denver, Colorado, to Costa Rica four times a week beginning Nov. 30.

The flights from Denver to Juan Santamaría International Airport, just northwest of San José, and from this airport back to Denver will be offered Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, according to the airline’s Web site. Introductory fares begin at $149 each way, not including taxes and fees.

The airline is also offering connecting flights to Denver from U.S. cities including Austin, Chicago, Dallas, Nashville, San Diego and Salt Lake City.

Additionally, Costa Rica’s Civil Aviation has given the go ahead to Spirit Airlines to open a route between the U.S. city of Los Angeles and San José, according to a statement from the Costa Rican Tourism Institute (ICT).

This was the final step necessary for this budget airline to begin the thrice-weekly flight. It has yet to announce the date it plans to launch this new route, reported the wire service ACAN-EFE.

Spirit began flying to Costa Rica from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, at the end of April, and the success of this flight piqued its interest in opening more routes here, the statement said.

Tourism Minister Carlos Benavides said he is pleased with the new flights, which jive with the ministry’s “open skies” policy it has been pushing since the beginning of this year to bring more flights to Costa Rica.
