Flight Routes and Schedules

New Arrival

Great Day all,


I have a question what will it take for the airline to travel to a specific airport?


I was born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic (SDQ) and going back to visit family is an odyssey because I live in Tampa, FL (TPA). It requires me to travel from Orlando (MCO) which means 2 hours of driving and hope that another airline has a non stop flight. My other choices are to drive or fly to Miami(MIA) or Fort Laureldale (FLL) and get on a non stop flight to SDQ, and even worse, having to travel from TPA to a random city like Newark NJ EWR to then travel to SDQ the next day  on a non stop flight. I have 2 children and as you may imagine this is extremely inconvenient. I have flown Southwest before and I had a great experience and would like to continue using the airline to travel to more places. I know the airline flies from TPA to PUJ. so the question is:


Why will it take for Southwest to fly into SDQ or even STI?
