Southwest Airlines announced their new schedule and the most exciting new route from this is New York (EWR) -San Juan, Puerto Rico (SJU), which will begin Dec. 17, 2016. To start, it will be operated only on Saturdays, but hopefully if the demand is there it will be added to a few more days during the week.

To celebrate this launch, Southwest will offer fares starting at $128 or 7,561 Rapid Rewards points each-way.

Bottom Line

I’m thrilled to see that Southwest is launching non-stop service from the New York City area to San Juan, Puerto Rico. It would be great if Southwest launches more Caribbean destinations from Newark in the future.
