Southwest Airlines Files Application for New Cancun Flights


Southwest Airlines has officially filed applications with the US Department of Transportation for new nonstop flights between Los Angeles International Airport and Cancun.

The proposed flights would operate twice-daily between Los Angeles and Cancun.

The company also filed applications for twice-daily flights from LA to San Jose del Cabo and once-daily service to Puerto Vallarta.

The service is slated to begin Nov. 6, contingent on approval by the end of this month.

“We’ve committed aircraft resources to serve these important trans-border routes at the start of the winter season and are asking that Southwest be allowed to add its low-fare, bags fly free, no change fee* competition and legendary Customer Service to benefit consumers in the U.S. and México,” said Gary Kelly, Chairman, President & CEO of Southwest Airlines.

Southwest already flies daily between LAX and Liberia Costa Rica.
