Southwest Airlines is adding two additional nonstop routes during the summer at Pensacola International Airport.
The airline will offer seasonal Saturday service from Pensacola International Airport to Austin, Texas through Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and St. Louis, Missouri through Lambert – St. Louis International Airport. Seasonal Service from Pensacola to Austin, TX and St. Louis, MO will run from June 10th through August 12th. Passengers can begin booking these new routes today at www.southwest.com.
“Our airport is growing by leaps and bounds, and we appreciate Southwest Airlines’ contribution to that growth,” said Mayor Ashton Hayward. “These flights will provide even more convenient options for our travelers. Our relationship with Southwest Airlines is growing and so is the list of destinations.”
Southwest Airlines currently offers daily nonstop service to William P. Houston Hobby International Airport and Nashville International Airport, seasonal daily service to Kansas City International Airport, seasonal service to Dallas Love Field and Denver International Airport on Saturdays and Sundays, and seasonal service to Chicago Midway International Airport on Saturdays. With the addition of Austin and St. Louis, Southwest now serves eight markets with 36 flights per week from Pensacola.
“When we added Dallas and Kansas City to our Pensacola roster last year, they were among our top-performing new routes across our network,” says Michael Cole, Director of Capacity Planning at Southwest Airlines. “The airport staff and a delegation from Pensacola visited our headquarters and shared a great deal about the opportunities and market potential in Pensacola. We look forward to the community’s support for these new routes and future growth.”
