Southwest Airlines to Offer New Flights Between L.A. and Liberia/Guanacaste

(PR Newswire) Southwest Airlines announces plans to boost its growing portfolio of international routes by offering nonstop service between Los Angeles International Airport and Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport in Liberia/Guanacaste, Costa Rica, beginning in April 2016. Dallas-based Southwest (NYSE: LUV) expects to operate the service daily from LAX Terminal 2, next to the carrier’s domestic operation in LAX Terminal 1.

“This new link for our customers in the LA Basin to Costa Rica’s growing resort and ecotourism region will bring to the market a value only Southwest can offer,” Andrew Watterson, Southwest Airlines senior vice president of Network & Revenue Management, said in a news release.

Flights will be available for purchase early next year at Southwest.com and are subject to foreign government approval.

The new international service comes as Southwest hits several milestones in a revitalization of its LAX facilities at Terminal 1. As part of the $508 million modernization project, a new ticketing lobby and baggage claim facility is set to open early next year. New entrances and additional capacity in the security checkpoint is expected to open in 2017, and new food options and other changes will be completed by 2018.
