Southwest Airlines expands seasonally from Milwaukee
Southwest Airlines increased its seasonal offering from Milwaukee (MKE) with the addition of weekly flights (Saturdays) until 11 April to Montego Bay (MBJ) in Jamaica and Punta Cana (PUJ) in the Dominican Republic on 24 January. The low-cost carrier will operate the route to Jamaica using its 143-seat 737-700s, a sector flown by Frontier Airlines weekly. In addition, the airport pair to the Dominican Republic will be served by its 175-seat 737-800s. Competition on this route will be provided by Frontier Airlines’ twice-weekly services. This brings to 22 the number of destinations served this winter by the airline from Milwaukee. Southwest now serves Montego Bay from a total of five airports (the others being Atlanta, Baltimore/Washington, Chicago Midway and Orlando), while Punta Cana is now served from four airports (the others being Atlanta, Baltimore/Washington and Chicago Midway).
