BREAKING Southwest Airlines Announces Year-Round Service To Palm Springs

BREAKING Southwest Airlines Announces Year-Round Service To Palm Springs

Southwest Airlines announced Thursday that it will soon be flying in and out of Palm Springs.

The new nonstop routes will be announced in the coming weeks and are expected to begin later this year.

The airline announced that it intends to initiate year-round service to both Palm Springs and Miami international airports.

According to the Patch, Southwest Airlines Chairman and CEO Gary Kelly shared news of the additional service points on the carrier’s route map in a weekly video message to the company’s employees.

“Our service to both of these airports will bring new, relevant options for our core customers. Gradually, they’re rediscovering leisure travel across the country as their own situations allow,” Kelly said.

Adding Palm Springs and Miami to its route map will bring additional revenue to Southwest at a critical time, according to Kelly.

“It matches our available fleet with demand for very popular destinations. Each airport fits our route system exceptionally well,” he said. “Palm Springs is a great California destination. Southwest has long carried more customers to, from, and within the Golden State than any other airline.”

“The addition of Southwest Airlines to Palm Springs International Airport is fantastic news which will have a positive impact on Palm Springs businesses, residents, visitors and the entire Coachella Valley as we all work to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Palm Springs City Manager David H. Ready. The new nonstop routes will be announced in the coming weeks and are expected to begin later this year.
