Starting in winter 2019, KLM will commence a new service to Costa Rica. In addition to its existing flights to San José, the Dutch carrier will add Guanacaste Liberia (IATA-Code: LIR) to its international route network.
The region on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica will be served four times per week with a direct flight from Amsterdam. On the southbound sector, this flight will make a short stop in San José before continuing to Guanacaste Liberia. The service will be operated by Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft that feature a three-class configuration.
The flag-carrier of the Netherlands currently serves more than 150 destinations worldwide. Furthermore, the carrier signed several partnerships and codeshare agreements with other airlines.
Its long-haul fleet consists of Airbus A330, Boeing 747-400, 777 and 787-9 aircraft. The airline plans to add Airbus A350-900 and Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner aircraft to its fleet in the coming years. KLM Cargo operates a fleet of several Boeing 747-400 freighter airplanes.
