Southwest Adds Service to Atlanta, Chicago, and St. Louis from Pensacola International Airport
In March 2021, Southwest Airlines will add three nonstop destinations to the services offered at Pensacola International Airport (PNS). Pack your bags this spring and take a trip to Atlanta, Chicago Midway, or St. Louis and enjoy the Southwest Promise.
Starting March 11 and continuing through April 11, Southwest Airlines will begin one daily flight to Atlanta (ATL), one flight to St. Louis (STL) on Saturdays, and two flights to Chicago Midway (MDW) on Saturdays.
“Pensacola continues to be a place where airlines see potential and growth as we navigate through the health crisis,” Pensacola International Airport Director Matt Coughlin said. “Our airport staff and our many airline partners are dedicated to providing an easy, safe and healthy flight experience.”
Southwest® Promise was issued in May 2020 to highlight new and round-the-clock efforts to support its customers' and employees' wellbeing and comfort. Among the changes are enhanced cleaning efforts at airports and onboard aircraft, and face covering requirements for customers and employees. Additional details about the Southwest Promise are available at Southwest.com/Promise.
The COVID-19 health pandemic has taken a toll on the airport industry across the world. With added safety precautions in place, Pensacola International Airport has seen a steady increase in air traffic. The number of passengers choosing PNS is exceeding national averages by 20-30%.
"This is yet another testament to the resilience of Pensacola International Airport and the desire for airlines to continue to expand their services here," Mayor Grover Robinson said. "I am excited to see new destinations at our airport to not only provide more travel opportunities for residents, but also connect new visitors to our beautiful city."
