    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Getting to and from Costa Rica is getting easier and cheaper by the minute. The US carrier Southwest Airlines will now fly direct from Baltimore and Houston to Costa Rica starting March 7. The company promises that the two new flights are almost 40 percent cheaper than those currently on the market.

    President Luis Guillermo Solis stated that these new flights are helping to reinforce tourism alliances made with the the United States to bring people to Costa Rica, which is the main market of the country.

    Nine in ten Americans entering the country do so by air. On average they stay 10.4 nights and spend approximately $1,230 during their vacation.

    The flight between Baltimore and San Jose will be on a Boeing 737-700 with capacity for 143 passengers and the flight between Houston and San José will be aboard a B737 aircraft, which holds 175 passengers.

    Tickets will cost between $130 and $140 one way, confirmed the Vice President of Southwest, Robert Jordan.

    Last year Southwest Airlines mobilized 100 million passengers internally in the United States, and the two new flights will allow Costa Ricans to access 90 different destinations in the country.

    In 2014, Southwest Airlines announced the addition the Central American market, with Costa Rica as the first destination for the new market. (Amelia Rueda)
