Southwest Airlines Shows Texas Some LUV

We were a little excited here in San Antonio after Southwest released their flight schedules today. Here in the Alamo City, we are used to making flight connections. So when an airline announces they are adding non-stop flights from San Antonio International Airport, it’s hard to not get excited!

The schedule includes new options for California Customers who use Oakland International Airport, and Texas travelers, as well as new gateways to Cancun.

Daily Nonstop Flights From San Antonio

Southwest Airlines (LUV) will offer daily nonstop flights from San Antonio, TX to Oakland, CA and Ft. Lauderdale, FL starting on July 8, 2018.

This is great news for the residents of San Antonio, who are currently required to travel to Austin to catch nonstop flights to Ft. Lauderdale.

Southwest will also resume its seasonal daily service from San Antonio to Cancun on June 7, 2018.

Cruise Passengers Will Benefit Too

Cruise passengers will also rejoice! The new non-stop service to Ft Lauderdale will open up additional cruise options from Florida. Using one of several airlines servicing San Antonio, you may now fly non-stop to New Orleans, Tampa, Miami, Orlando, Baltimore, New York, Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles – all cruise embarkation ports.

 

Houston Gets A New International Destination

San Antonio isn’t the only Lone Star city getting some LUV from Southwest. Houston, Texas was awarded weekly flights to Grand Cayman! Service is scheduled to begin on June 9, 2018, pending government approval, and will operate on Saturdays from Houston’s William P. Hobby Airport (HOU).  “On Saturdays in June, Southwest will offer 18 flights between Houston and 10 international destinations.” say sources at Southwest Airlines.
