Today extended the carrier’s bookable flight schedule from March 9 through April 24, 2017, while publishing new service to Mexico’s beach resorts from Oakland International Airport beginning Feb. 12, 2017, subject to approvals of the Mexican government. The carrier received U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) approval following its application and announced intention of service between Northern California and two destinations on Mexico’s Pacific coast. Additional routes newly link cities with nonstop service across the United States. In celebration of the new flights now available for purchase, Southwest is offering special fares (purchase today through Aug. 11, 2016, 11:59 p.m. in the time zone of the originating city).

“As we constantly look at new opportunities to connect Bay Area travelers with fun and exciting places in their lives, these Mexico beach destinations have long topped the list,” said Dave Harvey, Southwest Airlines’ Managing Director of Business Development.
“Oakland will become our latest gateway to Latin America and the Caribbean from the mainland in February and, with a new bilateral agreement becoming effective later this month, we anticipate additional opportunities to offer our low fares and unmatched value between the U.S. and Mexico.”
Harvey discussed the new flights with the carrier’s Bay Area Customers and Employees at a Viva Mexico!
