KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has officially launched a new direct service between Amsterdam and San Jose, Costa Rica.
KLM is operating the flights twice weekly throughout the winter season, with a third weekly service to be added from the end of January to the end of March.
It’s a major return for KLM, which last operated direct flights to Costa Rica in 1998.
“Our primary aim is to offer our passengers access to unique experiences,” said Boet Kreiken, EVP for customer experience at KLM. “We are therefore very proud to be able to operate flights to this wonderful destination once more.”
KLM said it was introducing the service “responding to growing passenger demand.”
The San Jose flights will be operated on Boeing 787-900 aircraft with 294 seats.
“Costa Rica is renowned for its breathtaking nature and attracts many tourists every year. For our business passengers, Costa Rica is interesting as market full of possibilities,” Kreiken said.
