Southwest Airlines announced four new domestic routes on Thursday. Starting in November, the carrier will offer new routes connecting cities in Colorado, California, and Tennessee. The new routes are open for booking through January 4, 2023. 

The carrier also expanded all its flight schedules until that date. Unlike other airlines, Southwest usually allows passengers to book their itineraries only a few months in advance, and the previous date limit was November 5, so it’s great news for those who want to plan other holidays —like Christmas or New Year’s Eve— with more anticipation.

Adam Decaire, Vice President of Network Planning, Southwest Airlines, said: “Summer is heating up early this year and our Network Planning Teams are focused on holiday travel options for Southwest Customers ready to plan family gatherings and winter getaways.”

According to the statement, the carrier is working hard to satisfy their customer’s needs and provide more alternatives for every traveler. Decaire also added: “We have returning seasonal fan favorites and brand new time-saving nonstop service, as we continue the work to restore more flying across our network on business and leisure routes.”

Southwest Airlines has already pleased customers with great offers for summer travel —like a 3-day sale to save 40% on qualifying base fares and a flash sale for top destinations starting at $45. Those interested in traveling low-cost should stay tuned and take advantage of the current promos and new itineraries.

In just a few months Southwest will start offering new nonstop routes that will benefit travelers, from those who want to visit the coast and spend some time in San Diego during cold winter to those who want to take advantage of the snow and go skiing in ​​Steamboat Springs.

These are the new itineraries:

  • From San Jose (California) to Palm Springs: beginning on November 6, the carrier will serve daily flights except on Saturdays. One-way tickets start at $79.
  • From Nashville to Long Beach (Calif): Southwest will offer daily services beginning on November 6. One-way fares start at $195.
  • From Nashville to Steamboat Springs (Hayden, Colorado): This route will only operate on Saturdays, beginning on Dec. 17. One-way tickets start at $148.
  • From Colorado Springs to San Diego: This route will operate “on select peak travel days” from late November through January.  One-way fares start at $115.

The new routes are exciting for third parties as well. Robert Garcia, Long Beach Mayor, shared his excitement about the new route including Long Beach, and  said: “As passenger traffic at Long Beach Airport continues to climb back toward pre-pandemic numbers, it’s great to see Southwest connecting more travelers and destinations to our award-winning airport.”

Travelers can book and see more details about the itineraries available on Southwest’s official website. Those interested in taking advantage of the special prices should bear in mind that low fares are limited and time-sensitive.

The carrier has been offering great deals to travelers this 2022 and during the past few days also special promotions for its anniversary. Considering that flight prices have been increasing in the past few weeks, Southwest is making travel more affordable during peak season.

Southwest Airlines has also been making improvements in promotions, fares, and services. A few months ago, the carrier made a major fare change and added a new category, the Wanna Get Away Plus, giving travelers more benefits like same-day changes, more frequent flyer miles, and the possibility to bring two bags in the cabin for free. 

The carrier is also developing its 5-year plan to enhance customer experience and will be offering better wifi, more comfortable seats, useful USB chargers, larger bins for carry-on bags on the planes, and more options for beverages and snacks. So travelers taking the new routes in California, Tennessee, and Colorado, might be able to experience cabin, seat, and services improvements
