Tico Times #TBT: Pan Am ceases flights to Costa Rica
Pan American World Airways, once one of the most recognized names in the sky, made Costa Rica one of its first international destinations.

Financial struggles forced Pan Am to cut several routes as a cost-cutting measure, and the airline ceased operations for good in 1991.
