Santa Barbara and Fresno Flights Out for Sale


With 2021 now in full swing, many of us are working hard to keep up with our New Year’s resolutions. Like many of you, I’ve made a resolution to travel more this year and explore new destinations. Luckily, Southwest Airlines is here to help us achieve our resolutions as two new destinations go for sale in California. Today, Southwest is publishing initial flight schedules to Santa Barbara Airport (SBA) and Fresno Yosemite International Airport (FAT), furthering Southwest’s commitment to The Golden State as its largest carrier and offering Customers throughout the network more travel options. With the publication of SBA and FAT, Southwest will serve 13 destinations in California, including Palm Springs (PSP) which launched last year.

Customers will be able to access SBA via one daily flight to both Denver (DEN) and Oakland (OAK) and three daily flights to Las Vegas (LAS), which will allow connections to more than 50 airports in the Southwest network.
