Guanacaste Airport manages to increase the frequency of flights to the United States
May 16, 2022

April air traffic exceeded the same period in 2019 by 23%

Guanacaste Airport – a member of the VINCI Airports network – continues to recover its air traffic. Three US airlines will increase their operations during May, June and July, offering a greater offer for passengers, allowing price elasticity and schedule options.

American Airlines will expand its daily frequency from Miami, increasing from two to three flights. While their once-a-week route to Dallas Fort Worth, Texas, they will now run daily.

United Airlines, will go from a weekly flight from Denver, Colorado and Newark, New Jersey to twice a week.

Jet Blue will also add one more frequency to its operations, offering four weekly flights on its route from New York's JFK airport.

César Jaramillo, General Manager of Guanacaste Airport, commented that “VINCI Airports' operational knowledge allows us to apply the best practices to obtain these results. Airlines trust Guanacaste as an attractive and safe destination, which is reflected in traffic in April, 23% higher than the same month in 2019.”

William Rodríguez, minister of the Costa Rican Institute of Tourism, said, “one of the institutional objectives to recover the visitation figures of 2019 is to attract new airlines, as well as increase frequencies of those that already operate in the country. This excellent announcement is a response to Costa Rica's strong position in the US market. We will continue working hand in hand with the private sector to increase the attraction of tourists to the country”.


We are the concessionaire of the Costa Rican State since 2010 for the design, construction, operation and maintenance of the new passenger terminal and associated land facilities of the Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport. Under its administration, it is managed with a 5-star Blue Flag, ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 50001 standards, in addition to being the first carbon neutral terminal in the region. For the fourth consecutive year, LIR has been awarded the Customer Service Quality (ASQ) award in Latin America and the Caribbean in the category of less than two million annual passengers.
