As a result of the arrival of Air Comet’s new flight


With the inauguration of Air Comet’s flights to Costa Rica, the availability of airline seats from Europe will have a significant increase for the rest of the year.

According to the Minister of Tourism, Carlos Ricardo Benavides, the arrival of a new airline from Europe, will not only result in an increase of seats available from that region, but it will make Costa Rica an attractive alternative for tourists from Europe.

“The Air Comet flights that will arrive at the Juan Santamaría International Airport from Spain three times per week will not only produce an increase of 25% in the availability of seats in the first year of its operations, but it will also prove Costa Rica’s strength as a mature and reliable tourist destination worthwhile investing in,” stated Benavides.

Data released by the Costa Rica Tourist Board (ICT) regarding Air Comet’s operations, indicate that the airline seats availability for the rest of this year could increase to 23,244 additional seats, and up to 46,488 in the first year of its operations.

The company initiated its operations to the country on July 2, 2007 using the route Madrid-San José-Madrid, operating an Airbus A-330, which has a maximum capacity of 298 passengers. This flight also offers connections to other important cities in Europe such as London, Paris, and Rome.

Benavides also emphasized that the successful strategy of ICT to attract airlines was an influential aspect for the company to make the decision to fly to Costa Rica. Some of the strategies agreed upon by the parties are related to joint promotion and marketing strategies.

A few of the strategies include offering trips to travel agencies and to the mass media with the purpose of them becoming familiarized with the airline, also promoting the country as a tourist destination through different travel agencies, in addition to having publicity on digital banners linked to search engines which promote attractive destinations, just to mention few of the strategies.
