United Airlines is adding a new flight departing from Costa Rica, and heading for the George Bush International Airport in Houston, Texas.
The new flight will take off from Juan Santamaria International Airport in Alajuela, Costa Rica, at 1:45 am. The early flight is aimed at clients that would like to make the Houston airport for flights heading to other locations in Europe and Asia by the morning. This flight will also reinforce United’s postion as the number one airline offering seats to and from Costa Rica.
United began offering non-stop flights bi-weekly from Washington-Dulles International Airport and Chicago O’Hare International Airport to San Jose, Costa Rica, in April of 2013, and continues to make its presence felt in Latin America. Also in 2013, United became the first airline to offer satellite-based WiFi services onboard its overseas flights, and has been endeavoring to improve the cabin space of its airplanes by adding more flat-bed seats in premium class and more leg room in economy class.
Along with United’s new red-eye flight, Southwest Airlines will be offering new flights in March of 2015 and later in October of 2015 respectively.
