Southwest Airlines has launched several new routes across the U.S. with many new routes being added to/from San Jose, Calif; Burbank; and New York (LaGuardia) to name a few of the highlights.
With this announcement, their new schedule is also posted, which means customers can book flights now through June 8, 2019. However, one thing to point out is that the airline still hasn’t started to sell flights to Hawaii, which is partially due to aircraft certification needed for these over-water flights.
Here’s a look at some of the new routes that are being added:
- Beginning today, Southwest began operating daily flights between New York (LaGuardia) and New Orleans.
- San Jose, Calif. and Tucson, Ariz. (nonstop itineraries are available Sundays-Fridays)
- Burbank and Houston (Hobby) (nonstop itineraries are available Sundays-Fridays)
- Burbank and Chicago (Midway) (nonstop itineraries are available Sundays-Fridays)
