Southwest Airlines is planning a significant Caribbean expansion out of the Orlando market, Caribbean Journal has learned. 

Beginning June 4, Southwest will be kicking off five new routes to the Caribbean out of Orlando. 

That includes new routes from Orlando to Cancun, Mexico; Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands; Nassau, The Bahamas; Providenciales, Turks and Caicos and Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.
