Southwest Airlines will expand its fledgling international-service network by offering new flights to both the Pacific and Caribbean coasts of Mexico from August 10 and early October, as well as launching other new international services.
The new routes are included in Southwest Airlines’ extended flight schedule, which now runs through October 31, 2014.
Beginning August 10, Southwest Airlines will operate daily non-stop flights linking Cancun with Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Airport as well as Saturdays-only service linking Cancun with Milwaukee.
Southwest will also operate daily non-stop service between Los Cabos International Airport in Mexico and John Wayne Orange County Airport.
Additionally, the airline will operate Saturdays-only service between Nassau and Atlanta.
Then, on October 7, Southwest will begin daily non-stop service linking Denver International Airport with Cancun. On October 11, it will launch Saturdays-only service between Denver and Los Cabos.
Sale fares can be purchased on southwest.com through March 13. To promote the new services, Southwest Airlines is offering introductory one-way fares (including U.S. and non-U.S. taxes and fees) for non-stop international flights from several U.S. gateways: Atlanta-Nassau from $127; Baltimore/Washington-Nassau from $126; Denver-Los Cabos from $192; Orlando-Montego Bay from $148; Milwaukee-Cancun from $214; and Orange County-Los Cabos from $143.
As the planned integration of wholly owned subsidiary AirTran Airways into Southwest continues, Southwest intends to serve five countries previously served by AirTran by the end of this year.
