ST. LOUIS — Southwest Airlines has released its spring 2018 schedule which includes a major boost in flights for St. Louis Lambert International Airport.

“To see an expansion of service before the very first flight shows that ticket sales are strong for Cancun,” said Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge. “We also know that St. Louis will become a great connection point for other Southwest markets for this new international service to Mexico.”

The March 2018 schedule for Southwest will bring a total of 114 daily departures to 43 destinations from STL. That’s seven flights or frequencies more than this past spring schedule.

In June, Southwest expanded in Terminal 2 with the addition of three new gates – E34, E36 and E38. That comes a year after it opened gates E31 and E33. Southwest now has a capacity to operate 17 gates at STL in Terminal 2.
