Southwest Airlines adds flights to 8 cities out of San Antonio International Airport in 2020

SAN ANTONIO – Travelers flying out of the San Antonio International Airport will have more options starting in the summer.

Southwest Airlines has added daily flights to seven markets and one Saturday-only service to Albuquerque, San Antonio airport spokesperson Rich Stinson said.

“This is one of the ways airlines, such as Southwest, test out new markets,” he said, adding that if the flight performs well, an airline may choose to grow its presence there. “The added frequencies provide even more options to the traveling public.”
