The Company's phased rollout of international nonstop with domestic connecting service also brings new options for Denver Customers who have made Southwest Airlines the largest air carrier in Colorado.

*Beginning in October 2014, Southwest Airlines will offer nonstop service between Denver and:

  • Cancun , with daily roundtrip flights beginning Oct. 7, 2014; and
  • San Jose del Cabo/ Los Cabos , with Saturday-only service beginning Oct. 11, 2014
