British Airways resumes its flights to Costa Rica
The British airline will fly three times a week to the Juan Santamaría International Airport from December to March
From the previous November 08 and until March 25, 2023, the British airline British Airways will fly direct three times a week to Juan Santamaría International Airport from London Gatwick Airport.
The news is extremely positive for the start of the high season, especially since the United Kingdom has become the main source market for European tourists to our country.
“The return of British Airways to Costa Rica means that we recover this important connection with the London market,” said William Rodríguez, Minister of Tourism.
The hierarch added that “this is one of the destinations that have responded best since the post-pandemic opening in Europe. We hope that with the three weekly flights from Gatwick we can see a significant increase in the arrival of English people to our country, thus encouraging the market more and more with a view to a gradual growth of operations from the English capital”
British Airways will make the journeys to Costa Rica in a Boeing 777-200 aircraft. British Airways will fly to San José on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays:
According to ICT data, between January and October of this year, more than 55,000 British tourists have arrived by air to Costa Rica by air, placing it as the main source market for travelers from Europe, followed by Germany and France.
