The cancelation of nighttime operations at Tobias Bolanos Airport in the Costa Rican capital has generated opposition from aircraft operators.
Owners of local businesses and tourism airlines opposed the decision to close the terminal at night time, arguing, among other things, that night operations have allowed opening hours to be extended to provide better options for tourists, who often use the terminal to get to San Jose, spend the night and leave the next day to go to their destination.
Due to a decline in the flow of international flights received at the terminal Tobias Bolanos, from October 1 it will only operate during the day, remaining closed from 6 am to 6 pm.
The decision, as reported by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation, was taken because most international flights are concentrated in the Juan Santamaria airport, meaning that the Bolanos Airport recorded very little activity at night.
The international airport in the capital of Costa Rica, will be too small to meet the air traffic needs of Costa Rica in the next 10 years.
In 1996 the U.S. consultancy firm TAMS Inc. "recommended the Civil Aviation authority to move the administration of Juan Santamaria Airport into private hands, while a new terminal was being built", which should be operational in 2020.
