The Land of the Midnight Sun state’s premier airline, Alaska Air, will add two new flights from its Los Angeles International Airport hub into Juan Santamaria and Liberia.
The new daily flights will begin taking place at the end of October and the beginning of November. The first flight from Los Angeles to San Jose will be October 31st, and the first flight from Los Angeles to Liberia will be the following day. Alaska, Southwest and Frontier Airlines are three of the newest airlines that have begun serving customers to and from Costa Rica.
The company said that many of its customers are adventure minded and requested that Costa Rica be the next stop on the list for Alaska Airlines. With the inclusion of Costa Rica, passengers flying through the Los Angeles hub can make connecting flights to Seattle, Baltimore and Anchorage.
These two locations in Costa Rica represent entry points to some different yet exceptional adventure experiences for travelers on Alaska Air. Liberia is the gateway to the Pacific Northwest Province of Guanacaste and its volcanoes, beaches and cloud forests. Some of the highlights of Guanacaste include Rincón de la Vieja Volcano National Park, Arenal Volcano National Park, the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve and the many beaches along the Nicoya Peninsula such as Playa Samara, Playa Nosara or Tamarindo Beach.
San Jose on the other hand represents an entryway to the metropolitan exploits of the capital and its surrounding areas. In the city you can find lots of museums, colonial architecture and history, and it is also the quickest route to the Caribbean and South Pacific coasts. Puntarenas is just an hour and half to two hours away via the freeway, and through Límon it is about four hours to the beach.
Alaska Air plans to have one flight on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday going to and coming from Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO). Fligths to and from Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport (LIR) will be Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
