Grab Your Passports … Southwest Is Going International

NewInternational_July1 Southwest Friends—it’s official!  A new chapter begins today in Southwest Airlines’ history, as we begin selling international itineraries that will be flown by Southwest aircraft.  Drum roll, please …. Oranjestad, Aruba (AUA); Nassau, Bahamas (NAS); and Montego Bay, Jamaica (MBJ) will become the very first international Southwest Airlines destinations beginning July 1. Click here to book your ticket to paradise! And these international destinations are just the beginning.  We look forward to announcing more locations over the next few months—all of which are currently served by our wholly-owned subsidiary AirTran.  So,  stay tuned! The work leading up to this historic day is truly a labor of LUV, and I’d like to personally thank all the Southwest Airlines Employees for making it happen.   And I invite all of you to start planning your tropical vacations today!
