Minimum of Six Passengers For Flights To Limón
Sunday 10 July 2011

Flying to the province of Limón has become a reality, but there is a catch, the airline needs at least six passengers to take off.

Let us explain.

The regional airline, Sansa, announced regular flights to and from the Caribbean province. However, due to high costs, the airline says it needs to have at least six passengers before its twelve passenger aircraft can take to the skies.

Sansa says it is hopeful that there is enough demand to have at least four flights a week, but no flight will take off unless it has sold 50% of the seats.

Sansa officials added that if the route takes off (no pun intended) it would add larger aircrafts to handle up to 50 passengers.

The daily flights between San José's international airport and the newly inaugurated airport in Limón could begin by the end of this month, as long as there is sufficient demand.

In addition, the airline is looking at the possibility of adding flights between Limón and Tortuguero, Guanacaste and Bocas del Toro in Panama, depending on the demand.

To cut fuel costs, the airline says it is meeting with the state refinery, Recope, to ask for a reduction in fuel prices for local flights.
