Southwest Airlines has officially begun service from Houston to Cancun, Mexico.
The service is operating twice daily between Houston’s William P Hobby Airport and Cancun.
The flights are part of a wider expansion in service from the new hub in Texas to destinations like Mexico City, San Jose del Cabo and a total of four cities in Mexico.
“Our roots run deepest in Houston, one of our original Southwest cities, where our friendly People offer reliable service at low fares and help make Southwest the airline that now flies more travelers in the U.S. every day than any other carrier1,” said Garry Kelly, Chairman, President and CEO of Southwest Airlines. “It’s a fitting place to firmly plant our investment to connect Houstonians and millions of Southwest Customers who will pass through this facility to what’s important in their lives across a growing list of international service options.”
Southwest also recently launched service from Houston to Belize City.
Houston’s already strong connection to the Americas — both culturally and economically — just got even stronger,” said Houston Mayor Annise Parker. “Houston has a well-earned reputation as a great place to do business, but it also features world-class amenities and an amazing quality of life. This partnership with Southwest will help provide limitless opportunities for businesses, residents, and tourists from the Americas to experience all of that.”
