The San Francisco International Airport (SFO) celebrated an announcement today from Alaska Airlines detailing plans to launch seasonal nonstop service from SFO to Liberia, Costa Rica starting December 21, 2024.

Alaska plans to offer one flight per week to Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport during the winter season using Boeing 737 aircraft.

Ivar C. Satero, Airport Director said: “We are very excited to welcome nonstop Alaska Airlines flights from SFO to Costa Rica this December.

“With this new service, Alaska is giving Bay Area travelers seamless access to a fantastic new warm-weather destination.

“We thank Alaska for their continued commitment to SFO and are confident this seasonal service will be a great success.”

Kirsten Amrine, vice president of network planning and revenue management at Alaska Airlines said: “We look forward to welcoming our guests onboard this winter on our new nonstop flight from San Francisco to Liberia, one of the most beautiful and vibrant destinations in Central America.

“This exciting new addition provides our guests with convenient connection to a destination we began flying to in 2015, and soon we’ll connect even more West Coast guests with Costa Rica’s Gold Coast when our service from SFO begins in December.

“Our guests can already begin taking advantage of an enhanced and premium travel experience when flying Alaska from SFO with our new location at Harvey Milk Terminal 1, which provides modern and innovative touches from the moment they step foot into our lobby.”
