Costa Rica's Airport is Busier Than Ever
The Republic of Costa Rica's Juan Santamaría International Airport recently reported over 2.8 million passengers passed through its facility during the first half of 2023.
As of June 2023, this activity represents a 4.3% increase in arriving and departing travelers compared to 2019.
The Tico Times reported on August 11, 2023, "The airport now hosts twenty-five airlines serving thirty-five destinations, enhancing global connectivity," said Erick Barboza, AERIS Business Development Director.
Recent AERIS analyses indicate increased Millennial (42%) and Generation X (32%) travelers to Costa Rica.
While in the U.S., the Transportation Security Administration's latest report indicated airport activity has not increased compared to 2019.
From a health perspective, Costa Rica was confronted with dengue, malaria, and Zika cases in 2023.
