We are delighted to hear that British Airways will be launching flights to Costa Rica!
This is great news for leisure and incentive travel. It’s a great departure time too 🙂
British Airways is to launch a new route from London Gatwick to Costa Rica from May 4, 2016.
The airline will initially fly twice per week to San Jose’s Juan Santamaria International airport (SJO). BA then plans to add a third weekly flight on the route for winter 2016/17.
During summer 2016, flights will operate on Wednesday and Saturday departing from Gatwick at 11.55 and 11.00 respectively, with arrival in San Jose at 15.45 or 14.50.
Flights for winter 2016/17 are going to operate on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, with departures on Tuesday and Saturday at 10.15 for arrival in San Jose at 15.35 and flights on Thursday will leave Gatwick at 11.25 arriving to Costa Rica at 16.45.
All flights will be operated using a Boeing 777 aircraft with a capacity of 275 seats.
Costa Rica will be the first destination in Central America served by BA, and this flight represents the second direct regular service between Europe and Costa Rica, opening more possibilities to connect with other BA 130 destinations.
We are very happy with this long-expected news and look forward to keep providing unforgettable holidays for your clients.
