Thomson Airways to offer London to Costa Rica nonstop flights

October 12, 2014

British charter airline Thomson Airways announced its first route to Costa Rica. The airline will fly nonstop between London and Liberia, starting November 2015.

The Costa Rican Tourism Board (ICT) said the airline will fly once a week from London’s Gatwick Airport. Each airplane will have a capacity for 291 passengers.

ICT data indicate that the UK is the fourth largest source of tourists from Europe to Costa Rica. Last year alone the ICT recorded 35,198 tourists from the United Kingdom and Ireland. That’s a 10.2 percent increase in arrivals from 2012.

British tourists stayed an average of 14.5 nights in Costa Rica and spent $94, ICT stated.

Last Friday, Costa Rica’s Foreign Minister Manuel González Sanz reported that he held a meeting with the CEO and senior executives of Turkish Airlines and began studying options for opening non-stop flights between Turkey and Costa Rica

The officials met during activities held during the opening of Costa Rica’s new embassy in Ankara. The embassy in the Turkish capital is the first new diplomatic office created under the Solís administration.
