SAN ANTONIO – As the demand for airline travel continues to increase, some airline carriers will resume service at the San Antonio International Airport in September that was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to a news release, United Airlines will resume nonstop service to Newark Liberty International Airport serving the New York metro area and San Francisco International Airport. This service provides San Antonio travelers with another option for connectivity through these important hubs.

Nonstop service to Newark will resume on Sept. 8 with daily service on a 126 seat Airbus A319. Service will increase to twice daily by the end of October. United will join American Airlines, which resumed nonstop service to nearby JFK Airport in August.

Travelers booking trips to San Francisco from San Antonio will also have more options. United will resume flying its 76-passenger E-175 aircraft to the destination six times weekly in September. Service is scheduled to increase in October to daily.

“The resumption of flights to these markets represent an important milestone in the recovery of travel throughout San Antonio’s route map. Even more resumptions will be seen on the flight schedule in October and November just in time for the holidays,” said Jesus H. Saenz, Jr., San Antonio Airport System director.

Southwest Airlines will increase its frequency to El Paso, Dallas, New Orleans and begin seasonal flights to Colorado Springs in November.

Sun Country will resume seasonal service to Las Vegas and Delta Air Lines will add flights to both Los Angeles and Minneapolis.
