What’s better: watching the sun rise over the Atlantic, or sailing through the San Juan’s at sunset? Or maybe sampling some wine at an Oregon vineyard is more your style? Thankfully, starting this year you won’t have to choose: Southwest Airlines will launch service to Myrtle Beach, S.C. (MYR), Eugene, Ore. (EUG), and Bellingham, Wash. (BLI) in the second half of 2021. Keep an eye on Southwest.com for more details about routes and prices when schedules are published later this year!

 

  • Myrtle Beach, S.C. service will provide convenient access to Grand Strand beaches and the Atlantic Coast. The Myrtle Beach region is one of the fastest-growing parts of the country—and for good reason! Between reveling in the surf and working on your golf game, the Grand Strand has no shortage of activities for visitors of all ages. Service to the Myrtle Beach International Airport will begin in time for summer break—keep an eye on Southwest.com for schedules when they are announced later this month! If you can’t wait for summer, visit Southwest.com now to book flights to nearby Charleston, or Savannah/Hilton Head—one of our other recently-added destinations.

  • Eugene, Ore. service will make it easier for Oregonians in the Willamette Valley to experience Southwest’s famous Customer Service, flexible policies, and low fares. If you’re planning a trip to Oregon, Eugene is a great place to start your tour of Oregon wine country, a coastal getaway to the Oregon Dunes, or a road trip to Crater Lake National Park. Eugene service will begin in the second half of 2021. Check back soon for more information about schedules and destinations!

  • Bellingham, Wash.—located in northern Washington, between the Cascade Mountains and the Salish Sea—will be a great gateway for anyone excited about exploring the Pacific Northwest, including those headed to the San Juan Islands, Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, or North Cascades National Park. If you’re feeling even more adventurous, Bellingham is also a great place to embark on a scenic train journey to Vancouver, B.C. or ferry to Victoria, B.C.—watch out for orcas on your way! Bellingham flights will begin in the second half of 2021. Check back soon for more information about schedules and destinations!
