Delta Airlines expands service for sustainable tourism

Saturday, December 17, 2022



Celebrating 20 years of helping travelers discover Guanacaste by Delta Air Lines, the Costa Rican paradise that features natural parks that are ideal for sustainable tourism and white sand beaches, giving the destination a charm of its own.

Beginning its service in 2002, Delta Airlines has helped grow tourism to the destination by flying more than 2.4 million people over the years.

The daily service Delta Airlines offers from Atlanta hub to Guanacaste’s Daniel Oduber International Airport (LIR), and would add a second flight from Atlanta on Saturdays starting Jan. 14, harmonizing the airline’s four – times weekly seasonal service from its Minneapolis St. Paul hub.

Surprisingly, Delta celebrated the occasion on Thursday in Guanacaste, for arriving and departing customers with a party that included traditional music. Cultural dance demonstration, local treats, and delightful gifts.

Luciano Macagno, Delta’s Managing Director of Latin America, the Caribbean, and South Florida stated that Delta was thrilled to commemorate this milestone with their customers, their employees, and their partners in Costa Rica.

They were proud to support this beautiful and biodiverse destination that embodies sustainable tourism. They look forward to connecting many more travelers between the U.S. and Guanacaste.

Costa Rica Tourism Minister William Rodriquez added that the celebration of the 20th anniversary of Delta Air Lines flying to Guanacaste is of historical importance.

It marked the arrival of the first U.S. airline with a permanent flight to Guanacaste airport, which was then very modest, and it was achieved thanks to the support of the private tourism sector.

It was the beginning of the opening of international operations to Guanacaste from the United States.

In October, Delta also marked 40 years of service to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, the iconic beach destination on the Pacific coast.

Known as the Friendliest City in the World, Puerto Vallarta is a favored destination of LGBTQ travelers and is renowned for its authentic Mexican culture, lively beaches, majestic mountains, and colorful streets.
