Southwest Airlines will take on new meaning for the St. Louis traveler beginning Saturday, March 9, 2024. On that day, Southwest plans to add seasonal nonstop service between St. Louis and Los Cabos, Mexico* (SJD). The route complements seasonal service to resume the same day between St. Louis and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic (PUJ).

Also beginning March 9, the carrier resumes seasonal service on weekends between St. Louis and three coastal destinations in Florida: Palm Beach (PBI), Pensacola (PNS) and Destin/Fort Walton Beach (VPS).

St. Louis passengers looking for a quick way to California’s Bay Area will rejoice with daily nonstop service restored between St. Louis and San Francisco (SFO) beginning March 7, 2024.

“Our passengers have been patient, but we are grateful that Southwest Airlines realizes the demand in St. Louis for non-stop service to the Bay Area,” said Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge, STL Director. “With the return of flights to San Francisco, St. Louis passengers now have the option of traveling to anyone of the three Bay Area airports."

In March 2023, Southwest scheduled a total of 712 flights each week. In comparison, the airline next March will increase their scheduled flights by 119 for a total of 831 weekly.  The airline, that same month, will increase their non-stop service originating from STL to a total of 53 markets. Currently, the airline has just under 58 percent (57.7) of the market share of STL’s enplaned passengers.
