Southwest Airlines expanding service from CVG to Orlando, Tampa and Phoenix

Erlanger, Ky. — Southwest Airlines is expanding service between Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) and Orlando, Florida – Orlando International Airport (MCO), Tampa, Florida – Tampa International Airport (TPA), and Phoenix, Arizona – Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport (PHX).

Service to Orlando, Tampa, and Phoenix will operate daily, rather than weekends only, beginning in early 2021. The increased frequencies are currently scheduled through April 11, 2021. This increased service follows the addition of a new nonstop flight to Houston that was announced last week (Sept. 30). Houston became the fourth nonstop destination served year-round by Southwest from CVG, which includes Baltimore/Washington (BWI), Chicago Midway (MDW), and Denver (DEN). In total, Southwest will offer more than 65 weekly flights to seven nonstop destinations from CVG.

Tickets are available now at Southwest.comand the updated schedule is outlined below:
