Southwest Airlines has extended its bookable flight schedule from 5 January until 8 March 2017.
Two new seasonal services come online during the winter season. On Saturdays, beginning on 17 December 2016, Southwest will fly nonstop between Newark and San Juan, Puerto Rico. Also on Saturdays, this time beginning on 7 January 2017, Southwest will fly nonstop between Dallas Love Field and Reno-Tahoe.
“Winter brings our planners a great opportunity to use available aircraft time to put our amazing people and comfortable planes on nonstop routes that can cure our customers’ winter blues,” noted Adam Decaire, Southwest's managing director of network planning. “Whether it’s skiing or surfing that entices them to fly, we’re pleased to bring these time-saving itineraries coupled with our world-famous customer service and value.”
Other markets in the schedule extension include weekend service between Ft Myers and Buffalo, Flint, Providence, Washington Reagan National and Kansas City daily. Other weekend service links extended include Orlando and Detroit, Flint, Richmond, VA and Omaha. The carrier also intends to fly nonstop on Saturdays between Ft Lauderdale and Minneapolis/St Paul.
