ST. LOUIS - Southwest Airlines announced St. Louis Lambert International Airport will become its next international gateway with service to Cancun, Mexico.
The airline set November 11 as a start date for the Saturday round trip service between St. Louis and Cancun.
St. Louis Lambert International will be one of 15 airports with international service on Southwest.
"There's been great growth and demand on Southwest in recent years and we're excited for this continued momentum with the addition of new international service," said Airport Director Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge. "With the airline’s great connectivity now to 44 domestic markets, we're optimistic this new flight will do well for both local and connecting travelers."
Southwest will operate nearly 110 daily departures from St. Louis this summer, including new service to Pensacola, Florida and Charleston, South Carolina starting June 4.
