Delta to Bring Direct Flights to Liberia

The Tico Times

September 20, 2002

Direct flights from the United States to the Guanacaste city of Liberia are on their way as of Dec. 1, when Delta Air Lines will offer a new flight between Hartsfield International Airport in Atlanta and Daniel Oduber International Airport in Liberia, Guanacaste. Delta will be the first major U.S. carrier to offer permanent regular service to Liberia.

Passengers can board the approximately three-hour flight on Wednesday, Saturdays and Sundays via a Boeing 737-800. Delta decided to add the flight in response to increased tourist demand in the northern province of Guanacaste, where tourism is one of the principal sources of revenue.

According to Leopoldo Hernández, Delta Costa Rica sales manager, "The flight will have a positive impact on the development of Guanacaste and the increase in tourism will boost the economy."

Delta is also offering additional flights to other Latin American and Caribbean destinations such as Aruba, Nassau and San Martín as part of a new expansion plan for Latin America. Delta currently operates one daily direct flight from its hub in Atlanta to San José´s Juan Santamaria International Airport.
