Costa Rica Airport Opens Information SiteSep 21st, 2010 | By Sue Gonzales | Category: Travel
Costa Rica Airport Information Site Opens
Finally there is a web page that travelers can look to for timely Costa Rica airport information including arrivals and departures from both international airports in the country.
For many travelers coming to Costa Rica, finding information like flight times and schedules can be difficult. Especially when you don’t speak Spanish, the native language of Costa Rica. However recently, Grupo Do It, a Costa Rican organization, has engineered a site capable of providing up the minute updates on flight arrivals and departures from both, the San Jose airport (Juan Santamaria International) and the Liberia airport (Daniel Oduber International). Additional plans include providing equivalent information on local flights throughout Costa Rica’s many municipal airports.
On the Costa Rica Airport (http://www.costaricaairport.net) site you will also find a plethora of information on transportation to and from the various Costa Rica airports and destinations, along with bargains on accommodations and also tour packages. As the site continues to blossom, there is a plan to incorporate a “review section” for rating and recommending hotels, tours and other tourism sector businesses. You will even be able to rate your travel experience!
With tourism numbers on the rise (9% per year), Costa Rica is actively working to accommodate the millions of tourists received each year. This includes the expansion of the Liberia International airport by adding a new terminal building valued at $35 million in order to increase processing capacity of passengers from the current 600, to 1500 once construction is complete.
HASDC, who gained the latest renovation contract for the San Jose airport and also the latest Liberia airport contract, operates out of Houston International Airport, which saw more than 43 million passengers in 2007. In comparison, Juan Santamaria welcomed only four million, and Daniel Oduber only saw 400,000. Keeping these numbers in mind, the Alterra believed that HASDC could manage the country’s largest airport and therefore sold the Houston-based company their renovation contract.
Many press releases have come from airlines like Jet Blue, Air Canada, Thomson Airways and more, with respect to increasing flights to the small Central American country. This is a clear indicator of the rise in interest, globally, in visiting the country they so affectionately call, “the lungs of the Earth”.
