Heading off on a winter escape just got a bit easier for Vancouverites, with the news that Sunwing will be offering a weekly non-stop direct flight service from Vancouver to Liberia in Costa Rica this coming winter; departing on Sundays between December 23rd, 2018 and March 31st, 2019. The flight service is anticipated to be operated on the airline’s new Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft. Once it commences, Sunwing will be the only carrier offering this route direct from Vancouver.

President of Tour Operations for Sunwing, Andrew Dawson, commented on the news. “We’re very pleased to be introducing Costa Rica for the coming winter. As well as being renowned for its eco tours and adventures, this popular destination also stands out for the quality of its accommodation. With this new service, our Vancouver customers will be able to choose between two of our consistently most popular top-rated resorts, Riu Palace Costa Rica and Riu Guanacaste, or be among the first guests to experience the new Planet Hollywood Costa Rica, opening this fall. As an added benefit, we will be operating the flight service on our new Boeing 737 MAX 8 airplanes. The improved fuel efficiency of the MAX will also enable us to offer an increased number of direct flight services from our Western airports.”

Last year, the travel company became the first to offer a direct flight service from Vancouver to Montego Bay, Jamaica. With the addition of Costa Rica, Vancouverites that travel with Sunwing will enjoy access to 11 different sun destinations from their doorstep this winter.

“We are thrilled to welcome Sunwing’s new service to Liberia, Costa Rica, which marks YVR’s first non-stop, direct flight to this popular Latin American destination,” said Anne Murray, YVR’s Vice President of Airline Business Development and Public Affairs. “Sunwing’s new service to Costa Rica will support our mission to connect British Columbia proudly to the world, providing passengers with an exciting opportunity to visit a great country—known for its amazing biodiversity, incredible attractions and friendly people.”
