Domestic airline Nature Air closed by civil authority

January 14th, 2018

The Dirección General de Aviación Civil (DGAC), the civil airline authority has closed Nature Air until further notice due to the apparent lack of three management positions, Director of Operations, Head of Security and a Head of Training. The previous head of training recently was killed in a major crash that claimed the lives of ten US citizens.

Nature Air and Sansa Airlines are the two domestic air services offering flights to the several (about 16) regional airports around Costa Rica. Nature Air also offered service to at least one airport in Panama. These airlines are popular with tourists and provide small planes commonly known as “puddle jumpers”… aircraft with single and dual engines. Prices are reasonable and help travelers avoid the long driving distances to popular tourist spots.

Travelers planning to visit Costa Rica with reservations on Nature Air should consult with their travel agents or directly with the airline to avoid a nasty surprise.  Sansa is unaffected by this closure. There is no indication that this suspension is permanent, but clearly travelers should do some checking prior to travel.  Interestingly, the Nature Air web site mentions nothing about the suspension.
