Costa Rica-based carrier Nature Air, the world’s first carbon neutral airline, has launched a new flight between San Jose in Costa Rica and Managua (Nicaragua). The new route operates four days a week (Monday, Wednesday, Fridays and Sundays), departing from Tobias Bolaño airport in San Jose, and stopping in Liberia, Guanacaste, before continuing to Managua.
Nature Air offsets 100 percent of its greenhouse gas emissions by subsidizing the reforestation and conservation of tropical forests in Costa Rica. Nature Air also provides social and economic benefits to the communities it flies to, through the Naturekids foundation in Costa Rica, which teaches poorer families how to become self-sufficient through environmental education programmes and English courses.
Central America continues to invest on improving its transport infrastructure to provide a high quality holiday experience. The new route will complement other regional connections offered by which code-shares with other airlines such as Iberia and United Airlines to facilitate inter- and transcontinental connections.
