Air France Direct to Costa Rica

Say Bon Jour to direct flights from France!

Bienvenue to Air France whose first direct flight lands on Wednesday, November 2nd from Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Airport.  The airline will operate two weekly flights into and out of Costa Rica’s capital at the Juan Santamaria Airport on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Almost 400 million Europeans travel to Costa Rica every year and this is increasingly annually.  British Airways and Thompson added direct flights to Costa Rica in 2016.  Swiss Air have also introduced new routes into the country for 2017 to cater for the increased demand for vacations to the Central American, eco-friendly nation.

Costa Rica is in on the action!

The Pura Vida airline, Air Costa Rica, is finally expected to begin operations with a scheduled inauguration flight to Guatemala in November of this year.  The country’s first international airline has four aircraft.

Air Costa Rica -- Taking Off Soon

They are expected to compete with other Latin American airlines, such as Avianca and Copa.  Routes and pricing have not been officially announced for the flights planned into San Andres and Cartagena in Colombia, Roatan in Honduras, and the Dominican Republic’s Punta Cana to link some of the most popular tourist destinations in the region.

And what will be on Air Costa Rica’s in-flight menu?  Gallo Pinto, of course!  😉
