Costa Rica is seeking an airline that would offer direct service from France to Costa Rica and a second airline that would offer service via the French Antilles.
That was the outcome of a meeting in France of Manuel González, minister of Relaciones Exteriores y Culto, with Annick Girardin, a member of the French foreign ministry.
The goal is to beef up tourism between both countries.
Also approvers were scholarships in France for some Costa Ricans and the development of advanced French classes in tourist zones in anticipation of more tourists from that country.
In 2013 some 39,728 French tourists visited the country, according to the Dirección General de Migración y Extranjería.
