Nature Air informs you that as of April 1st, 2006 we will have a new policy, which requires each passenger that weighs over 270 pounds (123 kgs) to pay for two seats.  This must apply do to the restricted seat size and because of the weight constraints of the aircraft. This policy will be effective from the Tobias Bolaños Airport in Pavas and from all other destination airports.  The passenger will be charged directly, regardless of if an agency has credit or not.
Thank you for your understanding with this matter.  If you have any question please do not hesitate to contact your sales representative at Nature Air.
