Destined for Cancun, the inaugural flight will take place March 10. It is the latest nonstop destination from Southwest.

Southwest has increased its nonstop flights leaving Indianapolis by almost 70 percent since 2014, said Mario Rodriguez, executive director of the Indianapolis Airport Authority.

The new nonstop flight to Cancun “sends a clear message that Southwest has strong confidence in the Indy market for further domestic and international growth and expansion,” Rodriguez said in a statement.

Southwest Airlines has more than 40,000 seats sold weekly out of Indianapolis on nearly 40 flights per day to more than 15 nonstop destinations, the most out of all of Indianapolis International’s airline partners.

Southwest’s seasonal Cancun service will depart Indianapolis on Saturdays from March 10 through the summer.
