Per Southwest Airlines,

Southwest Airlines Co. today announced new flights throughout its previously published schedule that bring San Diego Customers the carrier’s 31st destination available through nonstop service, San Jose del Cabo/Los Cabos, Mexico, subject to requisite governmental approvals, beginning April 25, 2017, making San Diego International Airport its fourth gateway city in California to offer international service nonstop. Southwest® operates international flights between the Golden State and a total of three cities in Mexico: Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, and San Jose del Cabo/Los Cabos.

Bottom Line

I’m thrilled to see that Southwest is launching non-stop service from San Diego to Mexico.  It would be great if Southwest launches more international destinations from San Diego in the future.

  1. Seems like a good route but weak in the big airline routes picture. Heck I can walk to Mexico from San Diego 🙂 it’s like launching a new Sacramento to Oakland route in my book.

  2. Dear Southwest: I get it. Flying to Mexico and the Carribbean makes you “international”.

    Now, how about a few flights to other places? Canada? Hawaii? Alaska? South America? Gulp – Europe??

    Getting tired of Southwest flying to Mexico. And Mexico. And the Carribbean. And Mexico. And the Caribbean.

  3. @daninmci. Seisouly ? That’s the worst analogy I have ever heard. You can easily drive from Sacramento to Oakland in an hour. I’d love to see you drive from San Diego to Cabo. Report back and let me know how to is

  4. @ryan it was suppose to be funny. Sorry I failed. It’s just not that important of a route to me personally but I don’t live in San Diego with a desire to go to Cabo either.
