Southwest Airlines has announced they’ll be pulling out of Mexico City, Mexico on March 30, 2019 due to poor financial performance. Their only current route from Mexico City (MEX) is to Houston-Hobby (HOU).

The four other current US airlines serving Mexico City (MEX) will still include American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, JetBlue Airways, and United Airlines.

Per Southwest Airlines,

This morning’s financial results included news that the Company will exit Mexico City at the end of March after nearly four-and-a-half years of serving the Mexican Capital.

The difficult decision follows careful analysis of months of performance data as well as several flight schedule modifications hoped to improve financial performance. Viewed through a lens of sustainable profitability, the performance of our Mexico City flights does not allow us to continue offering that service and we will redeploy our Crew and aircraft time on other opportunities within the existing Southwest network.

We’re grateful to many groups of People inside and organizations outside the Company invested in our success in Mexico. Because of their support, we continue to make investments in the Republic of Mexico with service to Cancun, San Jose del Cabo/Los Cabos, and Puerto Vallarta nonstop from a seasonal peak of 21 U.S. cities.

  1. Didn’t Southwest used to partner with Volara or some odd airline for Mexico redemption flights. I can see where most of their customers might be in the leisure locations of Mexico and not MC actually.
