Maybe it’s something in the water or perhaps it’s just the winter chill in the air, but whatever it is, one thing is certain – Canadians love Costa Rica. According to an article in Wednesday’s Tico Times, the new low-cost Air Canada Rouge airline from Air Canada will soon offer flights to several new destinations in Europe and the Americas, including Costa Rica.

New Flights to Costa Rica from Air Canada's Rouge


In a press release dated Wednesday, Dec. 19, Air Canada announced its new Rouge airline will begin services with two Boeing 767s and two Airbus 319s. Over the next three to five years, however, Rouge plans to add more than 50 aircrafts to its fleet.


The news comes less than two months after I posted about the Canadian airline WestJet, which made its inaugural non-stop flight from Toronto to Liberia on October 29, 2012. WestJet currently offers direct 5-hour flights between Toronto and Liberia twice weekly (Saturday and Monday), making it even easier for Canadians to escape the cold and visit the warm Guanacaste region (including Tamarindo!) of Costa Rica.


Now, with Air Canada Rouge flights beginning July 1, 2013, Canadians have yet another option to visit Las Mareas de Tamarindo and Costa Rica as a whole. According to the Tico Times, the new airline’s website offers flights from Toronto to San Jose and Liberia, ‘”Starting as low as $389 each way including all taxes, fees, charges and surcharges.”


The Rouge website indicates the airline will begin flying to Costa Rica from Toronto. But, Rouge flights to Europe will start out departing from airports across the country such as Montreal, Halifax, Ottawa, Edmonton, Calgary, St. John’s and Vancouver – meaning down the line, Air Canada Rouge could introduce non-stop flights to Costa Rica from various locations across Canada.


Very exciting!
