The cancellation of these flights endangers some 20,000 monthly airline travelers that we will lose from nonstop flights,” the chamber stated.The CCH demanded the Civil Aviation Administration, the Costa Rican Tourism Board and President Laura Chinchilla take “the necessary steps to correct this situation, whatever the end result.”The Colombia-based airline announced Friday it is eliminating five nonstop flights to Costa Rica, which also means the dismissal of 261 employees in the country.
