April 27. According to the Tico Times, all U.S.-based airlines that served Costa Rica before the pandemic have resumed service to the Central American country or have plans to do so in the near future. The last holdout, Southwest Airlines, on Monday announced its intention to re-start Costa Rica routes in June.
While some airlines are offering fewer flights than they did pre-pandemic, others have launched new routes or new service entirely. One highlight is Frontier Airlines, which will fly to Costa Rica starting in July after several years’ absence.
Costa Rica has kept its airports open for tourists since November 1, 2020. Visitors must complete an epidemiological form (“Health Pass”) and purchase health insurance covering Covid-19 in Costa Rica.
The country welcomed nearly 90,000 international arrivals this March, the latest available data.
