Costa Rica will receive its first direct flight from Australia on February 27

For the first time in history, on Monday, February 27, Costa Rica will receive a non-stop flight from Australia, which will arrive at 10:50 am at Daniel Oduber International Airport, in Liberia, Guanacaste. This was confirmed on Monday by Fernando Naranjo Elizondo, head of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation.

It’s a Bombardier Global 7500, registration N444WT from the Gold Coast in Australia. These are long-haul business jets created by the Canadian manufacturer Bombardier Aerospace.

Originally, it was designed to cover a distance of 7,300 nautical miles (about 13.5196 kilometers), with up to 10 people on board.

The plane took off from Australia on Sunday, February 26, at 8:10 PM Costa Rican time (12:10 PM on February 27, Australian time at the time). Forecasts indicate that it will arrive in Costa Rica after 14 hours and 48 minutes without interruption.

The direct route between both airports is approximately 7,400 nautical miles, while the Global 7500 has a range of 7,700 nautical miles. Because of tailwinds en route, range will likely be increased on this particular flight.

“Never in history has a flight been completed from Australia to our country, it is a private flight with six people on board, including the crew,” Naranjo Elizondo confirmed. In theory, it will be about six days in the country.

The official warned that there are flights with greater reach with technological innovations with more flying hours every day.

Officially designated the BD-700-2A12, the design is marketed as the Global 7500.

Its cabin is one-third longer than other manufacturers’ models in this type of business jet and offers a fourth section of seating instead of three. It provides an optional shower and resting area for the crew.

Bombardier’s marketing has focused on ultra-high net-worth individuals, and the Global 7500 is the largest, longest-range, most spacious and most luxurious purpose-built business jet ever, according to the announcement.
