Southwest Adds Cancun and Turks and Caicos to it's List of Destinations, Introduces new Fleet, and Continues to be the Nation's 'Most Loved'

Before you finalize your winter getaway plans, we thought you should know that starting in November, Dallas-based airline, Southwest, is debuting their non-stop flights to Turks and Caicos, and introducing non-stop service from St. Louis to Cancun!

The non-stop flights to Turks and Caicos will begin November 5, 2017, and will be offered from Fort Lauderdale (FLL) to Providenciales International Airport (PLS). The trip is just under two hours, making it a quick getaway for Florida residents and an easy flight with one layover for the many U.S. destinations that fly non-stop to Fort Lauderdale (FLL). The new non-stop flights from St. Louis international Airport to (STL) to Cancun (CUN) - Mexico will be offered each direction on Saturday’s only, starting the first Saturday in November.
While there are other airlines who already fly non-stop to the popular destinations, Southwest’s announcement is major for the more budget conscious traveler, and for those who use the airlines Rapid Rewards and Rapid Rewards Plus credit cards, as well as Chase Ultimate Rewards members . Additionally, the airline is pet friendly, offers two free checked bags per passenger, and offers fee-free cancellations and flight changes - a service many other airlines don’t offer.
The company continues to perfect its craft in customer service and “transfarency” through its policies, partnerships, and ongoing dedication to evolving with it’s consumers. Further testament to this is their plans to add 750 new aircraft and 4,000 new flights by the end of 2018 - beginning with their new and improved fuel-efficient and longer range Boeing 737 Max fleet, rolling out this weekend.
In addition to their new fleet, a bonus for Missouri residents is the newly unveiled Boeing 737 passenger jet, dubbed “Missouri One”. The jet, commissioned by Southwest in recognition of their 30th anniversary of serving St. Louis and 33rd anniversary of serving Kansas City, has the Missouri seal painted on it - and looks like something for top officials. Only, the jet will be used for scheduled Southwest passenger flights at Lambert and at Kansas City International Airport (KCI).
Missouri One is one of nine other state-themed 737’s - and along with their growing number of destinations, and economical prices - is yet another reason why the airline continues to be the Nation’s “most loved”.
