It’s been a very exciting month for Southwest, with a plethora of news coming out of Love Field:
- Southwest announces new flights from Cincinnati (CVG)
- Southwest removing service from 2 cities
- Southwest adds 4 new nonstop services to the Caribbean
Some airlines would call it a day, but not Southwest it would seem! Starting April 25th, Southwest will offer 1 daily roundtrip between San Diego International Airport and San Jose del Cabo (SJD). Per Points, Miles, and Martinis and the Southwest website:
Southwest Airlines Co. (NYSE: LUV) today announced new flights throughout its previously published schedule that bring San Diego Customers the carrier’s 31st destination available through nonstop service, San Jose del Cabo/Los Cabos, Mexico, subject to requisite governmental approvals, beginning April 25, 2017, making San Diego International Airport its fourth gateway city in California to offer international service nonstop. Southwest® operates international flights between the Golden State and a total of three cities in Mexico: Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, and San Jose del Cabo/Los Cabos.
In celebration of the international options for newly available nonstop travel, Southwest.com features low fares for travel from:
San Diego to San Jose del Cabo/Los Cabos, Mexico
for as low as $104 one-way beginning April 25, 2017
This is an already crowded route, with Alaska, Delta, and Spirit already duking it out–a four-way fight means someone is going to cry “uncle” quickly, I think, and I’m putting money on Spirit.
San Jose del Cabo comes on the heels of already impressive growth in California’s second most populous city, with new routes to Boise, Indianapolis, Newark, Salt Lake City, and Spokane announced earlier this month. When all these routes go into effect, Southwest will offer ~110 flights per day out of San Diego, making it one of their largest stations.
