Southwest launching new nonstop service to San Diego and Kansas City

We're in our most nonstop destinations ever era! ✨

Columbus travelers are gaining nonstop access to two new destinations from John Glenn Columbus International Airport (CMH) as Southwest Airlines adds service to San Diego International Airport (SAN) and Kansas City International Airport (MCI) next summer. San Diego and Kansas City are among the top destinations for Columbus travelers. Weekly service for both destinations begins in June and is available to book at

“Two of the largest unserved destinations for Columbus travelers will now be served nonstop thanks to Southwest Airlines’ new flights to San Diego and Kansas City,” said Joseph R. Nardone, President & CEO of the Columbus Regional Airport Authority. “We’re grateful to this valued airline partner for providing access to these popular cities for travel and tourism.”

Fun fact: with these additions, Southwest Airlines will fly to 21 nonstop destinations from Columbus. It also brings our overall total to 53 destinations offered out of CMH and the Rickenbacker Passenger Terminal (LCK).
