Copa Airlines has added Liberia, in the Guanacaste province of Costa Rica, to its list of destinations with the launch of a new flight from Panama.
The new Tocumen (Panama) – Liberia (Costa Rica) route operates on Sundays and Thursdays, departing Panama at 09:52 and arriving in Liberia at 10:23.
The return flight departs Liberia at 11:25 and arrives in Panama at 13:58 on both days.
For this route, Copa Airlines uses an Embraer 190 aircraft with capacity for 94 passengers (84 on economy and ten in business class).
Copa Airlines chose to open this new route to Guanacaste in recognition of the growing popularity of this region as a holiday and adventure tourism destination.
This is Copa Airlines’ second destination in Costa Rica, added to the company’s flights to San Jose, which started in 1967.
With this new route, Guanacaste is now connected to 64 destinations in 29 countries in North, Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean, served by Copa Airlines through their Hub of the Americas in Panama, the largest flight connection centre in Latin America.
“The arrival of thousands of tourists and business travellers from the Caribbean, Central and South America to Guanacaste will be a real boost for Costa Rica,” said the chief executive of Copa Airlines, Pedro Heilbron.
