Do you have questions? GOPlaya has the answers

1. After buying my ticket online, what’s next?

It is very simple. If your flight departs from Juan Santamaria International Airport in Alajuela, you should go to the domestic terminal; Skyway local flights depart from there. Make sure to arrive 50 minutes before your flight.

When approaching to the domestic terminal, there will be a Skyway counter where you must check in with your passport. If you are Costa Rican citizen and will be flying to a destination within the country, you can just show your ID. Then you must wait in the waiting room and follow the signs for takeoff.

Although the Juan Santamaria airport is the most common choice, because it is the country’s largest airport, is not the only one. You will have to arrive to the airport according to the destination you’re visiting. For example, if you visited Drake Bay and want to return to the capital of Costa Rica, you will have to get to Drake Bay airport to catch your flight.

Costa Rica airlines, Skyway.

2. What are the benefits provided by Skyway compared to other local airlines in Costa Rica?

The most important thing is that every aircraft is a two turbine plane. But, what does this mean? It basically means they are larger aircrafts, allowing it to be more stable, faster and safer. They are also more comfortable because they have more space in the cabin. GOPlaya understands that travel in small planes often causes some kind of suspicion or fear. Although it is impossible that the aircraft does not move at all in case of turbulence, it is quiet and safe.

The airline has the backing of a global company: AIRTEC Global and the pilots in charge are very experienced. They fly with captain and a copilot.
