Lufthansa will in the summer of 2018 commence scheduled flights between Frankfurt, Germany and San José, Costa Rica with effect from 29 March 2018.
The two weekly non-stop service will depart Frankfurt on Thursdays and Saturdays from Frankfurt to the capital city of Costa Rica, the ‘green paradise of Central America’.
The new service will be operated by an Airbus A340-300, which has 279 seats across Business Class, Premium Economy and Economy Class.
LH518 leaves Frankfurt at 13:45 and arrives in San José at 17:55 local time. The return flight takes off from San José at 19:50 and lands at Frankfurt Airport the following day at 15:10. Flight time is around 11 hours.
The service will be the second connection offered non-stop by Frankfurt to this region. The first is the connection from Frankfurt to Panama.
Costa Rica is especially popular with travellers and tourists. It combines fascinating landscapes, cloud forests, Caribbean flair and heavenly beaches with impressive national parks and rain forests.
