Good news for fans of Germany living in Costa Rica. Lufthansa will include the Frankfurt – San José connection in their summer 2018 flight schedule. From March 29, 2018, a non-stop Lufthansa flight will take off every Thursday and Saturday from Frankfurt to the capital city of Costa Rica, San Jose.
The connection is the second connection offered non-stop by the company from Frankfurt to Central America- the first being the flight from Frankfurt to Panama. Both connections complement each other.
You can now fly to San José seven times a week from Frankfurt: twice non-stop with Lufthansa, or five times via Panama with a short flight with Lufthansa’s partner Copa Airlines.
Flights to San José use an Airbus A340-300, which has 279 seats covering Business Class, Premium Economy and Economy Class.
LH518 leaves the Lufthansa Frankfurt hub at 13:45 and arrives in San José in the late afternoon at 17:55 local time.
The return flight takes off from San José in the evening at 19:50 and lands at Frankfurt Airport the following day at 15:10 after a flight time of around 11 hours.
