Sansa Opens Center In Southern Zone

August 17, 2007

Domestic airline Sansa is increasing its presence in the Southern Zone and other parts of the country with the opening of new customer service centers and routes.

The TACA subsidiary cut the ribbon Aug. 10 at its new customer service center in the beach town Puerto Jiménez, in the OsaPeninsula in southwest Costa Rica, with a party featuring live salsa music and a raffle for free flights.

The new center, complete with air conditioned check-in area, a boarding area, bathrooms and snack services, is one of four new such centers the company will be opening at Southern Zone tourism destinations this year.

The company will open centers in Southern Zone communities of Palmar Sur, Golfito and DrakeBay, as well as in Tambor in the NicoyaPeninsula. The centers will also offer reception and messenger services.

Speaking over salsa music at the recent party, Sansa Sales Manager César Solís told The Tico Times the airline company will soon be announcing the opening of new flights between Quepos and Palmar Sur, Drake Bay and Puerto Jiménez, Coto 47 and Golfito, Punta Islita and Carrillo and Barra de Colorado and Tortuguero, as well as a new flight between San José and La Fortuna.

The airline’s increased presence in the Southern Zone comes as tourism officials expect the region to be the home of the Costa Rican tourism industry’s next boom and as plans to open an international airport in Palmar Sur as early as 2010 move along (TT, Oct. 27, 2006; Aug. 3).
