southwest-international-destinations-logoTaking some Southwest international flights has been on my mind lately.  With all the snow and gloomy weather here in the northern United States, I would like to get somewhere warm, at least for a little bit!

Because I have the Southwest Companion Pass, which lets my wife fly for free no matter if I book a paid or award ticket, they are definitely one of the first places I check when we want / need to go somewhere.

Southwest flies to several international locations, but for whatever reason, the list of which locations have Southwest international flights is hard to come across via Google.  I have the same problem trying to find the IHG Point Breaks list.

(READ: Why is the Priority Club / IHG Pointbreaks list so hard to find?!?)

Eventually, I came across their route map, which has the information, but I thought it would be nice to have it in a more readable format.  This information does change, but as of 11/28/2014 this is accurate.
