Southwest Airlines has applied to the US Department of Transportation to provide daily, nonstop service between Orange County (SNA), CA, and Puerto Vallarta (PVR) in Mexico, beginning on 7 June 2015, subject to the relevant authority approvals.
"Extending our route map to the beautiful region surrounding Puerto Vallarta on Mexico's Pacific Coast is an exciting opportunity for Southwest and our customers across the United States," explained Gary Kelly, Southwest Airlines’ chairman, president, and CEO. "Puerto Vallarta will be our ninth international destination, allowing Southwest to continue our purpose of connecting people to what is important in their lives while also connecting them to an amazing new destination."
Kelly also announced Southwest's plans to add Saturday service between Baltimore/Washington International Airport and San Jose del Cabo/Los Cabos, Mexico, beginning on 13 June 2015, again subject to approvals from governmental agencies.
