Travel to Mexico

New Arrival

I'm scheduled to travel to Mexico this week. If the borders close, will I be able to get back to the U.S.?! What should I anticipate? Will you cancel flights from Cancun?

I haven't seen any announcements yet from Southwest (most of us here are customers like us).  There are news reports of potential additional travel restrictions and/or airline schedule adjustments.

 

Always have a backup plan, and if that includes travel, have an idea of your options in a worst case scenario.

Let's let Europe be your guide.

 

After borders to Europe were closed, Europeans could not fly to the US, but US citizens could return home. Airlines kept flying because Europeans need to get back to Europe and US citizens needed to get back to the US. , If borders to Mexico are closed, I would expect the same thing to happen.

 

Will SW, keep flying to Cancun?. There is no answer to that question at the moment.
