Air Canada Airline inexpensive fly to Costa Rica in 2013

As an introduction fee, travel to Costa Rica will cost from $389

Air Canada launched its new “leisure airline” or inexpensive Rouge call, which will begin in July 2013 and included in their destination airport Juan Santamaría and Daniel Oduber in Costa Rica.

“With the introduction of Air Canada Rouge, the company enters the growing leisure travel market,” he said in a statement Ben Smith, executive vice president of the airline.

Besides Costa Rica, Rouge flies to Venice, Edimburso, Athens, Cuba, Dominican Republic and Jamaica, all starting from Toronto, Canada.

As introductory rate, the Costa Rica travel cost from $ 389, according to the statement. Depending on the date with which to compare, this rate is two to three times cheaper than usual.

Currently Air Canada operates one flight to the country once a week nonstop. The rest of the airlines flying to Canada have a scale in the U.S. and none are inexpensive.

    The article is very incorrect in saying “The rest of the airlines flying to Canada have a scale in the U.S. and none are inexpensive.”

    The fact is that Westjet is significantly lower priced than Air Canada, and provides much better service too.

    Air Canada is government subsidized and totally unionized – most of the staff are miserable and grouchy most of the time.

    Westjet is owned by it’s Canadian employees and is non-union – the staff always seems to be happy and helpful.
