Whether you’re traveling to Costa Rica for vacation, medical tourism or real estate, it’s getting easier and easier to hop on a plane and fly to Costa Rica’s tropical paradise. United Airlines is the latest to add non-stop flights to the land of “Pura Vida”.
United Airlines will begin weekly year-round service between its hub at Washington-Dulles International Airport and both Guatemala City, Guatemala, and San Jose, Costa Rica, on April 13, 2013. The airline will also begin weekly year-round service between its Chicago O’Hare hub and San Jose the same day.
All routes will be operated with Boeing 737-800 aircraft with 16 seats in United Business, 48 seats in Economy Plus and 90 seats in United Economy class. The new flights complement United’s existing service to Guatemala City and San Jose from the airline’s hubs in New York and Houston.
“These new flights strengthen United’s Latin American route network and provide more convenient travel options for our customers,” said Millie Uriarte, director, Latin America Onshore & Caribbean Sales.
United is investing in upgrading its onboard products and now offers more flat-bed seats in its premium cabins and more extra-legroom economy-class seating than any airline in North America. In 2013, United became the first U.S. based international carrier to offer satellite-based Wi-Fi on long-haul overseas routes.
These new flights will benefit U.S. passengers looking to visit Costa Rica for real estate and retirement opportunities, providing many convenient travel options to this highly sought-after travel destination.
