More flights will land in Liberia

Daniel Oduber Quiros International AirportSan Jose, Costa Rica (ICT) - More airlines are asking for authorization to land in that runway from the control tower of the Daniel Oduber Quiros airport of the city of Liberia, in the province of Guanacaste.

US Airways began with an increase of two frequencies since the past June 4th, while United Airlines is preparing its luggage to begin operations to that region starting by the end of the year.

To attend the increase in the demand for flights, the platform’s capacity to accommodate airplanes is being expanded and a runway is being constructed.

With the two new flights of US Airways, this airport will attend 22 operations per week. Three years ago only three flights were attended weekly.

Currently, the following airlines are flying to Liberia: Delta Airlines from Atlanta, American Airlines from Miami, Continental from Houston and US Airways coming from Charlotte.

In the case of United Airlines, its operations center will be the city of Chicago.

The increase of the frequencies to Guanacaste responds to the strong demand by tourists from Miami, declared Mauricio Chacón, market manager of US Airways.
