Southwest Expanding Service to Cancun and other Destinations Next Spring

Posted on July 27, 2017 in Media Releases

Southwest Airlines has released its spring 2018 schedule which includes a major boost in flights for St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL).  The schedule, which begins in March, includes an expansion to daily service from single-day, Saturday service from STL to Cancun (CUN). The CUN service was just announced in May with the weekly non-stop flight scheduled to begin November 11.

“To see an expansion of service before the very first flight shows that ticket sales are strong for Cancun,” said Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge. “We also know that St. Louis will become a great connection point for other Southwest markets for this new international service to Mexico.”

The March 2018 schedule for Southwest will bring a total of 114 daily departures to 43 destinations from STL. That’s seven flights or frequencies more than this past spring schedule.

In June, Southwest expanded in Terminal 2 with the addition of three new gates – E34, E36 and E38. That comes a year after it opened gates E31 and E33. Southwest now has a capacity to operate 17 gates at STL in Terminal 2.
