Southwest Expands Spring Break Destinations in 2019 from Lambert
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), September 2, 2018 -Southwest Airlines is expanding its international service for the prime 2019 spring break travel season from St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL).
In its latest schedule, extending bookings from March 7 to April 7, Southwest has added two new Caribbean markets with Saturdayservice from STL to both Montego Bay, Jamaica (MBJ) and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic (PUJ) - both pending final governmental approvals on those new flights. STL became Southwest's 15th international gateway less than a year ago when it launched its first international flights from St. Louis to Cancun, Mexico (CUN).
Southwest is also re-starting seasonal service in March 2019 to West Palm Beach, FL (PBI) on Saturdays and Charleston, SC (CHS) on Sundays.
"The expansion of scheduled international service shows the continued strength of St. Louis as a destination and as a connecting airport for Southwest Airlines," said St. Louis City Mayor Lyda Krewson. "The international destinations are in addition to strengthening frequencies and schedules to several other cities on the Southwest schedule."
