The airline’s entry into Liberia marks their 70th city overall and second in Costa Rica. JetBlue already operates daily service to San Jose, Costa Rica from Orlando International Airport.

The new service will begin on November 17th, timed to coincide with the opening of a brand new terminal at Liberia’s Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport.

“We’re delighted to be adding Liberia to our growing list of destinations and giving our customers access to the breathtaking Guanacaste beaches and natural parks,” said Chad Meyerson, director of global sales for JetBlue Airways. “Costa Rica and its people have much to offer and have been a great partner since we started flying to San Jose more than two years ago. We’re happy to be able to strengthen that relationship today while expanding our footprint in Central America.”

“We are overjoyed that JetBlue has added Liberia to its list of destinations giving U.S. travelers even greater access to Costa Rica,” said Allan Flores, Costa Rica Minister of Tourism. “This new route will allow U.S. travelers to have unprecedented access to Costa Rica’s Northwestern region rich with so many tourist offerings, particularly during the high season months.”
