Frontier Airlines to fly direct between Liberia, Costa Rica, and Denver, Colorado

April 8, 2014

 

Beginning in February 2011, Frontier Airlines will begin offering a new route from Denver, Colorado, to Daniel Oduber International Airport in Liberia, capital of the northwest Costa Rican province of Guanacaste. Frontier has offered direct flights between Denver and Juan Santamaría International Airport outside San José since 2007.
 
The Frontier flight will leave from Denver at 8:25 a.m. Sunday mornings, arriving in Liberia at 2:35 p.m. The return flight will leave Liberia at 3:25 p.m., arriving in Denver at 8:10 p.m. The new flight will be offered only on Sundays.
 
Increasing the number of international flights to and from Costa Rica is one of the key goals of Tourism Minister Carlos Benavides.
 
“The promotion of new airline carriers and routes is a very important push during this administration,” Benavides told The Tico Times in April. “It will be important to try to establish new routes to new markets, and we are looking to promote more destinations for tourists from the U.S. and Canada.”
 
Daniel Oduber International Airport is increasingly becoming a prime portal for tourists. The Costa Rican Tourism Board (ICT) reported in April that over 50,000 travelers touched down in Liberia during the first two months of 2010, an increase of more than 24 percent over the same months in 2009. Liberia is about a 45-minute drive from the Pacific coast.
