SAN ANTONIO – Airlines at the San Antonio International Airport are adding more nonstop and daily flights to travel destinations like Los Angeles, New York City and Cancun.

In a news release on Tuesday, the airport said several airlines increased their offerings as San Antonio is expected to experience its busiest summer air travel season ever.

The airport is expecting 10% more travelers this summer than in the summer of 2019 — the last summer before the COVID-10 pandemic.

The new flight options include:

  • Delta Air Lines will relaunch daily nonstop service to New York City (JFK) and add a third daily flight to Detroit (DTW), starting on May 8. Delta will also add a third daily flight to Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) on June 20.
  • Sun Country Airlines will resume service to Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) and Cancun (CUN) for the summer, from pre-Memorial Day to mid-August. The Cancun flight will be available on Sundays, Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays during that time.
  • Southwest Airlines will increase nonstop, daily service to Cancun starting June 3. Southwest will also add a third daily flight for weekdays to Baltimore/Washington (BWI) and add daily service to Kansas City (MCI) on July 11.
  • Spirit Airlines will add daily flights to Los Angeles (LAX) on May 5.

Airlines are expected to add more nonstop services in the coming months, the release states.

“We’re so happy to see these new routes added just in time for summer—like Spirit Airlines starting nonstop service to California next month and to see Delta, Sun Country and Southwest all add more flights,” Jesus H. Saenz, Director of Airports, San Antonio Airport System, said in the release. “This increase in air service means more competitive fares giving more families the ability to travel and enjoy memorable experiences together.”
