Southwest Airlines (LUV) announced Wednesday a new route from Los Angeles to Costa Rica.

The new travel option will be available starting April 2016, according to a press release. People will be able to start purchasing flights from LAX to Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport beginning early next year.

“We proudly carry more passengers to and from California airports than any other airline and continue to invest in the Golden State by adding new short, medium, and long-haul service this year from all nine of our California airports,” Andrew Watterson, Southwest Airlines senior vice president of network and revenue management, said in a statement.

He added, “We are just getting started with a service footprint outside the U.S. mainland designed to offer the more than 100 million People who fly with us every year international opportunities to connect with what’s important to them.”

The announcement of the new route comes a day after Southwest revised its 2015 revenue guidance downwards.

In September, Fortune profiled the company’s business strategy.

An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that the new flight path was to Puerto Rico.
