Southwest Airlines to fly to Costa Rica
Southwest Airlines will begin flying to Costa Rica, giving the carrier its first international destination beyond Mexico and the Caribbean.
Southwest announced that nonstop service to the Costa Rican capital of San Jose will launch March 7 next year, with one daily round-trip flight from Baltimore/Washington International.
Until the Costa Rica announcement, Southwest's existing or planned international routes were all to Mexico or to island nations in the Caribbean.
