New Costa Rican airline, Ticos Air, now hiring

August 14, 2014

The recently formed Costa Rican airline, Ticos Air, is searching for personnel to fill several administrative and technical posts.

Marketing Manager Daniel Gil said the new company plans to hire 120 employees, who will join 22 current workers to launch the airline’s operations.

Gil said the company expects to begin operating its first flights in early 2014.

Ticos Air provided the Civil Aviation Administration with the required documentation for operating permits last June.

The airline will operate five Airbus 319 aircraft, and the first destinations are Mexico City, Caracas, New York and Miami.

The company formed in December 2012, and has since been establishing offices in San José, hiring workers, buying planes, and conducting other preparations. TACA Airlines’ decision in May to drop five nonstop flights to Costa Rica from the United States and other countries created a market opportunity for Ticos Air and other international airlines. TACA also laid off 261 employees from its Costa Rica operations as part of an integration process with Colombian-owned airline Avianca.

Applicants interested in working for Ticos Air should send a résumé by email to: rrhh@ticosair.com.

The airline’s website, www.ticosair.com, is currently under construction.
