Traffic Grows at Liberia Airport

Despite not operating at night, the international airport in northern Costa Rica received 755,000 passengers during 2014, with the proportion of business travelers increasing.

Tuesday, April 21, 2015

The increase in air traffic at Daniel Oduber airport in Liberia is mainly due to the expansion in infrastructure made in 2012, which increased the capacity for new airlines and because of this also attracted more passengers. On top of this is the recovery that has begun in tourism and real estate development in the north. At the end of 2014 the airport recorded 6,500 aircraft operations, ie 2,800 more than in 2010.

Francisco Cordero, general manager of Coriport, airfield management company, told that "... Two years ago, 98% of passengers came for tourism and 2% for business. Today that has changed a little. Now 95% of passengers come for tourism and 5% say they come on business matters. Liberia is connected with major cities in the United States and Canada. From here there is direct service to New York, Atlanta, Dallas or Miami. This makes it is easy to connect to US cities and from there to the rest of the world. "
