New Frontier Airlines Plane Tail Artwork Promotes Costa Rica
Frontier Airlines is painting one of their plane tails with a two-toed sloth as a nod to Costa Rica’s long running dedication to conservation and sustainability. This will be a fun new art piece travelers can experience as they travel from the US to Costa Rica. It’s safe to say that most tourists visiting Costa Rica come with the hope of seeing one of our beloved furry, slow-moving friends.
Ireth Rodriguez, head of Promotion at the Costa Rican Tourism Institute (ICT) stated, “We are honored that such an iconic species of our country and a national symbol is now an ambassador of our nature every time it takes to the air on the tail of a Frontier aircraft.”
While choosing a two-toed sloth as a symbol of Costa Rican conservation was a relatively easy decision, choosing the right image was less so. Locals, visitors, and photographers have captured so many incredible shots over the years. Costa Rican photographer Jesús Fung received over 500 photo submissions as he represented ICT on the search for the perfect shot.
Frontier Airlines announced their new tail artwork on Facebook, saying “Say hello to the newest endangered species joining our fleet, the Two Toed Sloth!
“The Two Toed Sloth who has yet to be named, lives in the rainforests of Costa Rica and is known for its laid-back lifestyle, spending up to 20 hours of its day asleep. Even though they like to keep to themselves, they are an important part of the rainforest ecosystem, and their endangered status can prove problematic for the rainforest in Costa Rica.”
Frontier Airlines Flights to Costa Rica
Currently, Frontier Airlines flies to both Juan Santamaria Airport in San Jose (SJO) and Guanacaste Airport in Liberia (LIR).
