Hacienda AltaGracia and Sansa Airlines Introduce Exclusive Flights Between San Jose and San Isidro Costa Rica
Dec 16, 2015
Just in time for high season, guests will enjoy convenient 35-minute access to Costa Rica’s pristine hill country, national parks and southern coast
SAN ISIDRO, COSTA RICA (December 14, 2015) – In response to the rising popularity of Costa Rica’s verdant Pérez Zeledón region as a tourist destination, Sansa Airlines, a local subsidiary of Latin American airline Avianca, will launch three weekly flights from San Jose International Airport to San Isidro airfield starting December 15, 2015. The new time-saving alternative will grant guests visiting our luxury resort in Costa Rica, Hacienda AltaGracia easy access to the natural attractions of the lush mountains of Pérez Zeledón.
The new Sansa Airlines 35-minute southbound flight will be on a twice-daily schedule departing San Jose International Airport every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday at 7:55 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., with return flights from the San Isidro airfield departing at 8:40 a.m. and 1:45 p.m. on the same days. Sansa Airlines will be the first carrier to offer flights to the San Isidro region of Costa Rica.
“We are excited to introduce more travelers to Hacienda AltaGracia and to this majestic region of Costa Rica thanks to this quick new route,” said Juan Paolo Alfonso, General Manager of Hacienda AltaGracia. “Guests will delight in the aerial arrival to the Pérez Zeledón-area that will surely inspire further exploration of this undiscovered destination in the resort’s own ultralight planes.”
A modern glass-cockpit Cessna Grand Caravan 12-seat aircraft will transport passengers on the 35-minute flight. Tickets will be priced at $106 per way inclusive of taxes and fees. Hacienda AltaGracia will have ground transfers available from the San Isidro airfield to the luxury spa resort in Costa Rica.
Tickets for the new flight route by Sansa Airlines are available for purchase directly through Hacienda AltaGracia by calling 1-855-452-6326 or online at www.flysansa.com.
