Delta Expands Service to Liberia (LIR), Costa Rica

Press Release: Delta Airlines
Airline to begin weekly service between Minneapolis-St. Paul and Liberia (LIR), Costa Rica
Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) will add a new Latin American destination from its Minneapolis-St. Paul hub, and expand flying to Brazil, as it continues its expansion into key Latin American markets.
Delta will begin new year-round weekly flights between Minneapolis-St. Paul and Liberia (LIR), Costa Rica, beginning in January 2012. The service will operate every Saturday using 160-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

This area of north west  Costa Rica´s Pacific Coast, known as the Guanacaste region, is served by the Liberia airport (LIR). The area offers numerous activities along the beach, in the charming towns, and in the nearby rain forests. Most hotels are located on the beach and several are all-inclusive.
By renting a car, you can combine your visit to the Guanacaste region with a stay in either the cosmopolitan city of San José or surrounded by the natural beauty of the Arenal Volcano/Monteverde area—or you can combine all 3 areas for a great Costa Rican adventure.
In addition, Delta will add an additional weekly frequency between Atlanta and Brasilia, Brazil, upgrading the flight to daily service, beginning Dec. 12. That flight is operated using 162-seat Boeing 757 aircraft. And Delta will add two new weekly frequencies between Detroit and Sao Paulo, bringing that flight to daily service, effective Dec. 19. The flight is operated using a 209-seat Boeing 767 aircraft.
“With our new service to Costa Rica and expanded flights to Brazil, Delta continues to open up new Latin American destination from our key hubs,” said Bob Cortelyou, Delta’s senior vice president – Network Planning. “Delta continues to grow in this important region, enhancing our leading global network to offer new travel choices for our customers.”
