Frontier Airlines has announced they will be painting one of their plane tails with a two-toed sloth in promotion of Costa Rica and our dedication to sustainability and conservation. Travelers will enjoy seeing one of Costa Rica’s most popular creatures on their planes, especially considering most people traveling to Costa Rica do so with high hopes of seeing a sloth.
The head of Promotion at the Costa Rican Tourism Institute (ICT), Ireth Rodriguez, announced “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.”
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.”
