Not the best timing giving the COVID-19 pandemic, however Southwest Airlines has released their latest flight schedule. Southwest Airlines is now open for booking through the end of October, and they plan to add several new routes including to Mexico.
Anyways, Southwest will offer twice-daily nonstop service between Phoenix and Cabo San Lucas/Los Cabos* and once-daily nonstop service between Phoenix and Puerto Vallarta starting October 8, 2020.
Per Southwest Airlines, other highlights include:
Long Beach Service Expands
Southwest also announced today an expansion of its service for Customers in the LA Basin who utilize Long Beach Airport. Effective Aug. 11, 2020, will add one additional nonstop flight on weekdays directionally between:
Long Beach, Calif. and Oakland (A total of five roundtrip flights Mondays-Fridays)
Long Beach, Calif. and San Jose, Calif. (A total of five roundtrip flights Mondays-Fridays)
With these new routes, Southwest will offer up to 14 departures on weekdays from Long Beach.
New Nonstop Service
Southwest recently began serving several new routes throughout North America. This past Saturday, the carrier launched new international service between:
Houston (Hobby) and Cozumel, Mexico (Twice-daily)
Baltimore/Washington and Providenciales, Turks and Caicos (Seasonal Service offered on Saturdays)
The carrier also began daily nonstop service between Maui and Sacramento, Calif., between Atlanta and Memphis (two flights per day Sunday-Friday, one flight on Saturdays), and once-daily service between Des Moines and Denver.
Again, given the COVID-19 pandemic, I wouldn’t be surprised to see these new routes postponed or cancelled altogether.
