United to fly non-stop between Chicago and Costa Rica

United Airlines announced plans Wednesday to begin new non-stop service on several international and domestic routes in the spring, including weekly year-round service between Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport and San José, Costa Rica, scheduled to begin April 13.

The flight is subject to government approval and will operate using Boeing 737-800 aircraft, the company said in a release.

From other hubs, United also will begin international service between Washington, D.C.’s Dulles International Airport and San José, subject to official approval.

The airline is set to launch new domestic services from Dulles to Vancouver, British Columbia, between Newark and Edmonton and between Denver and Fort McMurray, Alberta.
