Southwest announced this week that it will launch new nonstop service to Mexico. Previously, only AirTran flew to Mexico, so this will be a first for Southwest to head South of the border.

The cities in Mexico that Southwest is adding are: Cancun, Mexico and San Jose del Cabo/Los Cabos, Mexico


Beginning Aug. 10, 2014, Southwest Airlines will operate daily, nonstop flights between:

  • Cancun, Mexico, and Atlanta, Baltimore/Washington, and (Saturdays only) Milwaukee
  • San Jose del Cabo/Los Cabos, Mexico, and Santa Ana/Orange County
  • Nassau, Bahamas, and (Saturdays only) Atlanta

Beginning in October 2014, Southwest Airlines will offer nonstop service between Denver and:

  • Cancun, with daily roundtrip flights beginning Oct. 7, 2014; and
  • San Jose del Cabo/Los Cabos, with Saturday-only service beginning Oct. 11, 2014

Earlier this year, Southwest announced that their first international destinations would be Aruba, The Bahamas, and Jamaica.

Beginning July 1, 2014, Southwest Airlines will operate daily, nonstop flights between:

  • Atlanta and Aruba, and Montego Bay
  • Baltimore/Washington and Aruba, Nassau, and (twice daily) Montego Bay
  • Orlando and (Saturday only) Aruba, and Montego Bay

Bottom Line

These are just the first of many international destinations that Southwest plans to serve, so it will be interesting to see where else they plan to add service in the  future.

  1. Any news of international flights from Oakland? I got the email yesterday that said they would have some flights from August onwards, but it did not say the destionation

  2. Service from Oakland to San Jose de Cabo starts on August 26 (it’s actually service from Oakland to Orange County to Cabo). For Cancun, apparently it doesn’t start until October 10 (and sure it won’t be non-stop). Hope that helps.
