Daniel Oduber Quiros Airport / Guanacaste Airport (LIR) 

The Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport, located in Liberia Guanacaste, will undergo major renovations beginning in March to rehabilitate its lone runway. The project aims to upgrade the runway to enable continued growth in traffic and larger aircraft for at least the next eight years. The work will focus on repairing and waterproofing the pavement structure of the nearly two-mile-long runway, as well as improving drainage systems to withstand heavy rainfalls. Construction is set to take place nightly from 9 p.m. to 9 a.m. over six months to avoid disruption of daily flight operations. Funding for the renovations was secured through the National Emergency Commission as part of the country’s rebuild efforts following substantial damage from Tropical Storm Bonnie last July 2022. The airport serves as a major gateway for tourists traveling to Guanacaste’s popular beach resorts. Major carriers like American, United, and Delta have added routes to meet rising demand.
