The Costa Rican government’s intention is clear, according to declarations by the Deputy Minister of Air Transport, Luis Carlos Araya, outlined in an article "TACA is asking us for more studies to be conducted with Panama to discuss a possible agreement and therefore we have not signed with them. Obviously, we are investigating to make sure TACA’s hub will not be affected because it is a major source of employment ... we have given them (TACA) the opportunity to bear with us on the waiting time that they are reacting to.
