Volaris will resume flights to and from Costa Rica on November 23, the airline announced.
The Mexican airline — which has a subsidiary based in Costa Rica — says “all of our routes to/from Costa Rica” will resume on that date.
Volaris says it will also reactivate its routes to and from Guatemala and El Salvador on November 23.
The low-cost carrier expects to operate five flights daily to Costa Rica, according to La Nación. Volaris will connect the San José area (SJO) to Los Angeles, New York, Washington D.C., Cancún and Mexico City.
Costa Rica has gradually reopened its airports to tourists since August after closing its borders in mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic. As of November 1, it will welcome visitors from across the world who meet a series of entry requirements.
