The following post is by Network Planning Senior Analyst Jon Selig.


As our thoughts continue to be with our Employees, Customers, and neighbors impacted by the flooding and Hurricane Harvey’s impact along the Gulf Coast, our flight schedule has been extended through June 1, 2018.


The latest schedule contains substantial growth throughout the Golden State. We’re adding nearly 20 new nonstop routes from cities in California to destinations located in almost every part of the country including key cities like Austin, St. Louis, and more.  And, we’re opening up new international gateways in four cities: Sacramento, San Jose, Columbus, and New Orleans.


What are the big highlights of this extension? Let’s take a closer look:


Effective March 10, 2018

Saturday Service between Sacramento and Cabo San Lucas and between San Jose and Cabo San Lucas, subject to requisite government approvals. Additionally, San Diego Customers will be able to enjoy Saturday and Sunday service to and from Puerto Vallarta, complementing its daily service to Cabo San Lucas.


Effective April 8, 2018

Among the new routes, travelers can enjoy daily nonstop service between:
