Canadian airline announces new flights to Costa Rica

April 8, 2014

Canada’s Sunwing Airlines announced the launch of new flights to San José in addition to current flights to Liberia, provincial capital of the northwestern province of Guanacaste. Flights from Toronto, Ontario, will depart weekly on Fridays starting Dec. 21.

In a press release, the company said that due to the popularity and success of its Costa Rica program, it also will be offering vacation packages for destinations in Guanacaste, the Pacific province of Puntarenas and the capital, San José.

“We are delighted to add flights to Costa Rica,” said Andrew Dawson, president of tour operations. “Not only will travelers be able to enjoy vacation packages to beach resorts in the Central Pacific region, they will also be able to take advantage of affordable flights into San José to join independent tours beginning and ending in the city, as well as connect with flights to other Central American destinations,” he added.
