Nature Air, Costa Rica’s leading airline

With its main hub in San Jose, Costa Rica, Nature Air is the only airline that offers domestic routes to all the top tourism destinations in Costa Rica, as well as two international routes to Bocas del Toro, Panama and Managua, Nicaragua.

We give passengers a safe, fun way to travel between these unique destinations, while saving you hours of time on the road so that you can make the best of your valuable vacation time. A flight with us means flying past active volcanoes, over towering waterfalls and along the virgin coastline – turning an ordinary trip into a sky tour.

We also take care to protect the delicate ecosystems we fly to, and that is why we became the first Carbon Neutral airline in the world! We care for you just as much as we care for nature, making passenger safety and comfort our top priority. Our customer service and on time performance is unrivaled in the region; and our roomy planes with nature-inspired tail designs and oversized windows make our flights a one-of-a-kind experience.

In addition to flights in Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Panama, Nature Air offers an inflight travel magazine, private charter flights, air cargo service, and a flight school.

Nature Air has flown more than 250.000 flights in Central America and more than 110.000 passengers last year.

Our history of fine service and safe, reliable operations make us the preferred airline of the finest hotels in the region and the most respected tour operators worldwide.
