Costa Rica: Air traffic Down 4.8%

The elimination of LACSA routes, which in 2013 changed hands to Avianca, partly explains the reduction in landings and takeoffs at the two main airports compared to 2012.

In 2013 76.287 landings and takeoffs were recorded in the two major international airports in the country, while in 2012 this figure was 80.007, according to the National Directorate of Civil Aviation.

The report states that "... The total number of international passengers passing through the Daniel Oduber, Bolaños Tobíoas and Juan Santamaría airports amounted to 4,390,813, slightly less than the 2012 figure of 4,443,638."

"In looking at the proportional distribution of international passengers at the airports, Juan Santamaria had 87.7%, Daniel Oduber 15.1% and Bolaños Tobíoas 0.2%.
