British Airways is to launch a new direct route from London Gatwick to San Jose (airport code SJO), Costa Rica from Wednesday 4 May 2016.
Flights will initially operate twice weekly, increasing to three times a week from the end of October 2016:
Flights will be operated with a three class Boeing 777 aircraft (world Traveller economy, World Traveller Plus premium economy and Club World business class) and are on sale now at ba.com
This will be the only direct service between London and Costa Rica. BA’s IAG sibling Iberia also flies to San Jose daily from Madrid, and bookings can combine flights on the two airlines. For the avoidance of any doubt, BA does not currently fly direct to San Jose, California (airport code SJC).
