SOUTHWEST LAUNCHES NEW WEEKEND SERVICE TO DENVER AND DAILY SERVICE TO KANSAS CITY

Pensacola International Airport Gains Ten Weekly Flights this Summer


PENSACOLA, Fla. (Jan. 5, 2017) — Southwest Airlines will offer expanded services and routes this summer at Pensacola International Airport (PNS). New, non-stop weekend service to Denver International Airport (DEN) will run June 30-August 14, offering flights on Saturdays and Sundays. Southwest is also renewing its seasonal service to both Kansas City International Airport (MCI) and Dallas Love Field (DAL) with an increase in frequency: daily non-stop to Kansas City; and twice Saturday and once Sunday flights to Dallas. Southwest service to and from Pensacola International Airport is now 34 flights per week. Passengers can begin booking flights today at http://www.southwest.com.

“The new non-stop service to Denver and the return of non-stop service to Dallas and Kansas City is great news and a sign that Southwest Airlines, like so many other businesses, is confident and optimistic about Pensacola’s continual growth,” said Mayor Ashton Hayward.  “These additional routes will increase our exposure to the West and Midwest while strengthening the connection between the 2nd and 3rd most populous states in the country.  We have built a tremendous relationship with Southwest Airlines over the past three years and we look forward to making it even better in the years to come.”

Southwest Airlines continues its daily non-stop service to Nashville International Airport (BNA) and William P. Hobby International Airport (HOU) from Pensacola International Airport. Non-stop Saturday service to Chicago Midway International Airport (MDW) also returns March 11.

“We see growth potential in Pensacola,” says Dave Doty, Senior Manager of Business Development at Southwest Airlines. “The airport staff has been extremely helpful in making a case for our expansion of service. The partnership with Pensacola International Airport has been valuable as we plan to serve our Customers.”
