Southwest adds new routes from Orlando to four cities

Southwest Airlines has added new, nonstop services from Orlando to four cities across the country.

On Saturday, the airline began three new routes to Albuquerque International Sunport (ABQ), Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), and Long Beach Airport (LGB), according to a statement issued by the company.

All three of the routes will be operated on Saturdays during the summer travel season.

A fourth route connecting to El Paso International Airport (ELP) will begin operation in September, after the summer travel season is complete. That route will operate on Saturdays as well.

Southwest Airlines has flown out of Orlando International Airport for nearly three decades and offers daily, nonstop flights to at least 36 cities across the United States. The airline currently operates out of Terminal A, Gates 101-110, and 120-129.

According to the airport, the new routes to Albuquerque, New Mexico and Long Beach, California mark the first time that MCO is offering service to those cities.
