The Southwest flights will begin April 14, 2018 pending regulatory approvals. They would fly on Saturdays to and from Cancun. The airline didn’t say when the seasonal service would end.
The Southwest website shows a nonstop flight starting next April departing Columbus at 7:45 a.m. and arriving 3 1/2 hours later in Cancun. Prices start at $169 one-way.
No airline flies a regular route between John Glenn International and Mexico although two other airlines, Delta and Vacation Express, also offer seasonal service to Cancun.
