MIAMI — Southwest Airlines announced yesterday new flights along the west coast. Beginning August 1st, Southwest will offer twice daily service between Sacramento and Long Beach, and once daily service between Sacramento and Spokane.

Southwest Employees joined Sacramento County leaders yesterday at a news conference in Sacramento International Airport to announce these new flights.

“As we approach 700 departures a day this summer from a total of ten airports in California, we’re continuing an investment in the Golden State that dates back 35 years,” said Andrew Watterson, Senior Vice President & Chief Revenue Officer for Southwest.

In addition, the carrier will increase the amount of flying between Sacramento and both, Seattle and San Diego, this summer. Beginning June 5, Southwest will offer up to 11 flights a day in each direction between Sacramento and San Diego, and up to six flights a day in each direction between Sacramento and Seattle.

“Every flight brings an average 143 seats and dozens of people who are traveling Southwest to connect with business, family, friends, and experiences that matter to them,” Watterson said.

Later this month, Southwest intends to increase its international presence in California by adding San Diego International Airport as its fourth gateway airport in the state (alongside Oakland, Los Angeles, and Santa Ana/Orange County) as daily nonstop service between San Diego and San Jose del Cabo, Mexico begins April 25.
