Condor Airlines to add weekly Costa Rica – Germany flight

April 23, 2014

German carrier Condor Airlines announced it will add a new weekly flight between San José and Frankfurt, Germany starting on November 4.

Felicia Lorenzen, Condor’s representative in Costa Rica, said the company will submit in coming days all documentation required by the Civil Aviation Administration.

If approved flights on the new route will depart on Tuesdays at 9:20 a.m. from the Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO), just outside of San José.

The carrier currently operates two flights between Costa Rica and Germany, all with layovers in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Those flights leave on Mondays at 7:40 a.m. and on Thursdays at 8 a.m from the Juan Santamaría airport. The aircraft have a capacity for 270 passengers.

“The new flight reflects a greater interest by German travelers in visiting Costa Rica, but also by Costa Rican travelers who are increasingly using Frankfurt as a starting point for their trips to Europe. Condor’s hub in Frankfurt currently connects 75 destinations in Europa, Asia and Africa,” Lorenzen explained.

Data from the Costa Rican Tourism Board and Immigration Administration indicate that 54,000 travelers from Germany entered the country in 2013. Those who entered on a tourist visa stayed an average of 18 days and spent some $78 daily.
