As from November 2 and throughout the 2016-17 winter season, Air France will offer two new weekly services to San José, Costa Rica, on departure from Paris-Charles de Gaulle.
The flights will be operated every Wednesday and Saturday by Boeing 777-300 with a capacity of 468 seats – 14 in Business, 32 in Premium Economy and 422 in Economy.
“By offering two new direct flights between Paris and San José, we are connecting all of Europe to an exceptional tourist destination”, said Frédéric Gagey, Chairman and CEO of Air France, adding that the new offer aims to support the vibrant economy of Costa Rica, the leading market in Central America.
“Our long-haul network offer is thus improving in a region of the world where we are already a European leader”, Gagey said.
Air France’s flight AF430 will leave Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 13:45, arrive at San José Juan Santamaría international airport at 18:10 the same day. The return flight AF431 will leave San José Juan Santamaría international airport at 20:40 and arrive at Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 13:50 the next day.
“Thanks to this new flight, French travellers will come to our country more easily… This will boost our country’s tourism industry and benefit over 600,000 people working in this sector directly or indirectly as well as business lines for which tourism represents a growth opportunity”, Luis Guillermo Solís, President of the Republic of Costa Rica, said.
