Air France started operating the Paris-San José route back in November or 2016 and the service so far was only offered during the European winter from October through March, the airline had already announced in March of this year that thanks to the success they’d had the operation would add a third flight for the 2017-2018 season.
Now, the airline has confirmed they will continue to operate two weekly direct flights starting on April 1st, 2018, on Wednesdays and Sundays.
AirFrance only waited two seasons before launching the permanent service to Costa Rica which speaks of the positive results the company has had.
“Thanks to the great reception of the route offered by Air France to Costa Rica and the increasing demand of the market, Air France and KLM will be expanding their offer in the country. During the European winter 2017-2018 we will add a new flight to offer three direct flights between Paris and San José and we will inaugurate the KLM route between Amsterdam and San José with two weekly flights; once the season is over, as of April 1st 2018 we will have two Air France flights, this way Costa Rica will be permanently connected to France”, explained Pía Lackman, General Manager of Ari France KLM for Central America and Panama.
The Amsterdam – San José route will begin operating in October 31st, 2017 with a Boing 787 of 294 seats.
Air France also offers weekly flights going through Panama, one daily KLM flight and six weekly Air France flights.
