The flight will leave Costa Rica at 6:40 p.m. local time with a scheduled arrival in Vancouver at 12:20 a.m. “Bringing our Airbus A321neoLRs into our fleet in winter 2019-2020 will give us greater flexibility, which will help us reinforce our leadership in Quebec, strengthen our presence in Ontario and return in force in the Canadian west,” said Annick Guérard, chief operating officer for Air Transat, in a statement. “We will therefore be adding new destinations out of Vancouver, including Fort Lauderdale, Fla., as well as Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, and Costa Rica.”The triangle route is similar to KLM’s upcoming offering from Amsterdam to Liberia through San José. “A new stage is opening for the coordinated operation of both international airports,” said María Amalia Revelo, Minister of Tourism. “The fact that Air Transat becomes the second airline offering a triangular flight to these two airports is an opportunity to multiply visitation, generate employment and continue to strengthen Costa Rica as a tourist destination.” Air Transat currently offers seasonal flights to San José and Liberia from both Montreal and Toronto. The new Vancouver flights are available for booking on Air Transat’s website. Facebook Commentslast_img read more
