Southwest Airlines has restarted its regular flights to Liberia’s Daniel Oduber International Airport as of Sunday. From Houston, a SouthWest Boeing 737-76N with the registration N7733B arrived in Liberia with 145 passengers. Following the COVID-19 outbreak, the airlines have decided to suspend operation as of March 20, 2020.
Southwest Airlines aircraft from Houston, Texas, landed at 12:51 p.m. with 145 people on board, resuming service to Liberia’s Daniel Oduber International Airport (LIR), as it had done before the border closure last year.
Southwest was welcomed with a canon water salute upon landing, and passengers were given a gift of a Guanacaste-themed face mask.
In addition to the regular flight from Houston, Texas, a weekly flight from Baltimore, Maryland, will begin on Saturday, June 12.
Southwest started operating in Costa Rica in 2015, and Liberia was among the first Central American destinations.
Visitors are flying into or out of Liberia’s airport no need to go for a covid-19 testing center; they may now get tested inside the airport terminal.
