New Routes to Paradise: Los Cabos Becomes More Accessible for Travelers
Vacation planning can sometimes be discouraging when you realize you have to make connecting flights, adding unnecessary hours to your trip. But here’s some exciting news: two low-cost airlines are expanding their routes to one of Mexico’s premier getaways, making it more accessible whether you’re on the East Coast, Midwest, or Canada.
Expanding Southwest Service Southwest, one of America’s favorite low-cost carriers, is continually growing its network of exciting destinations. Now, they’re bringing more flight options to sunny getaways, just like Canada-based WestJet. Southwest already serves numerous Mexican destinations, including many in Los Cabos.
Two more cities have reason to celebrate as they join the list. Both cities often endure bitterly cold winters, making travelers eager for a sun-soaked vacation. The first new flight is departing from Baltimore, Maryland, with four new beach routes. Southwest will commence nonstop flights from Baltimore to Los Cabos on March 9, 2024, initially offering service exclusively on Saturdays.
The other lucky city is St. Louis, Missouri, also known for its harsh winters. Travelers from this region will appreciate more options for sunny escapes. Southwest is introducing four beach getaways from St. Louis, with nonstop service to Los Cabos starting on March 9, 2024, available only on Saturdays.
Many of the new flights will come to some of Mexico’s finest beach destinations, including Los Cabos.
The first new flight will take off from the coastal city of Victoria. This new schedule will begin on November 9, 2023. This nonstop flight will take place once per week so seats will be limited.
Abbotsford is home to the Abbotsford International Airport, a much smaller airport compared to Vancouver.
That being said, Abbotsford is growing and a great alternative to Vancouver travelers for perhaps cheaper sunny getaways.
WestJet’s latest route from here will go to 2 of Mexico’s top beach destinations, one of those being Los Cabos. This nonstop route will begin from Abbotsford on December 4, 2023, available only once per week. So it’s best to book in advance to make sure you get a seat!
Are Tickets On Sale Yet? Both WestJet and Southwest will fly into Los Cabos International Airport (SJD), where Uber is not available. However, it is easy to get a secure shuttle to reach your hotel with the latest improvements.
Tickets are on sale at both airlines’ websites, and apps. Southwest recently announced their full flight schedule through April 8, 2024. This means, at the current time, travelers wanting to fly from either Baltimore or St. Louis to Cabo will only be able to book a flight from March 8 to April 8, 2024, until Southwest extends their schedule again.
