Frontier Airlines, a Denver-based company, inaugurated its new direct Flight to Costa Rica this past Friday, Nov. 30. The airline first announced its decision to add San Jose, Costa Rica as its 11th international destination back in May and starting booking in June, with promotional prices starting at $198 for a round trip ticket.
Costa Rica News — Frontier flies to Costa Rica
The flights are listed as running every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday from each destination. However, Denver departures leave just after midnight on those days, so travelers must arrive at the airport late Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday. Jan. 5 will mark the beginning of a 5th weekly flight, departing on Saturdays.
Frontier’s new fleet of Airbus A319 planes will be used on the new route. The direct flights feature 24 DIRECTV channels and pay-per-view movie access at every seat, and an above-average 33 inches of leg room.
Costa Rica is the 4th country served by Frontier Airlines (the United States, Canada and Mexico being the other three). The company currently flies to over 50 U.S. destinations. The new route will make travel from the west coast of the United States to Costa Rica much easier. Previously, it was common for these passengers to make connections in Texas or Miami.
Both Denver and Costa Rica are known for their beautiful natural landscapes and efforts at nature and wildlife conservation.
