Fresh off the press this last week is news from Southwest Airlines that they will begin offering service to San Jose, Costa Rica! with an application filed with the US Department of Transportation, Southwest Airlines could begin flying a daily round-trip service between Baltimore/Washington (BWI) and San Jose, Costa Rica (SJO) by March 7, 2015.
Costa Rica will become Southwest Airline's sixth international destination including the current five destinations listed below:
- The Bahamas
- Cancun, Mexico
- Los Cabos, Mexico
This is exciting news for frequent fliers of Southwest Airlines. Especially those who have obtained a Companion Pass that will allow both you and your companion to go to some great international destinations!
The first thought that came to mind when hearing of this news from Southwest was a new found opportunity to visit the Andaz Peninsula Papagayo Resort (by Hyatt). At 15,000 points per night, this property is amazing and if I can have a companion travel for free, we might have to check it out!
