Delta celebrates 25 years of operations in Central America

Delta Air Lines has celebrated its 25th anniversary of service to four Central American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala and Panama. Delta’s flights have been connecting travelers between the thriving tourism and business destinations and the airline’s extensive route network in the U.S. and points throughout the globe. With unparalleled operational reliability, a people-first focus and an award-winning customer experience, the airline has played an important role in helping to grow tourism, fostering business opportunities and bringing friends and families together.  

Throughout the airline’s 25-year Central American journey, Delta people have forged strong ties with the local communities and partners, as travelers have discovered the destinations and travel and tourism have grown.  

“We thank our customers for choosing Delta, and we’re grateful to our teams for helping to make these routes a success,” said Agustin Durand, Delta’s General Manager of Sales for Central America and the Caribbean. “Aside from providing excellent service to our customers, Delta’s people in Central America have volunteered for and supported organizations and causes such as Junior Achievement Americas, Desarrollo en Movimiento Guatemala and the Pacific Run in Guanacaste, among others. We look forward to continuing to play an important role in the development of Central America as a region.” 

Delta currently offers an average of 123 weekly flights between the U.S. and the four rich and diverse countries it serves in the region. 


Costa Rica is a paradise that boasts natural parks ideal for sustainable tourism and features miles of beautiful white-sand beaches that help give the country its unforgettable charm. Since Delta began service to the country’s capital of San Jose in 1998, and later to coastal Guanacaste region (Liberia), it has flown more than 2.4 million people on the routes. Currently, Delta offers up to 39 weekly flights on four routes from the U.S. to San Jose and Guanacaste (Liberia). Delta has also increased frequencies from the two Costa Rican cities from one to two per day, to accommodate end-of-the-year holiday travel.  


Cradled by the Pacific Ocean and the Panama Canal, Panama’s modern and beautiful capital features many attractions including the Casco Viejo, a famous historical colonial center paved with cobblestones. Delta offers nine weekly flights between Panama City and the airline’s Atlanta hub.  


Delta serves Guatemala’s capital, Guatemala City, a destination rich with Mayan history and known as the place of many trees, with daily flights to its Los Angeles and Atlanta hubs.  


El Salvador boasts stunning beaches and surf spots along the Pacific Ocean and rugged and beautiful mountainous landscapes. Delta offers 14 weekly flights from its Atlanta and Los Angeles hubs.
