Southwest Airlines announced that, starting March 7, 2020, a route between Houston (HOU) and Cozumel (CZM) is available twice daily.

“Scuba divers and beach fans long have wished to fly with us to enjoy this underwater paradise,” said Bill Tierney, vice president, marketing, Southwest. “We’ll bring the world-famous hospitality and value of Southwest to Cozumel while bringing a new beach destination within reach for our customers, just as we’ve done before with service to Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas, Los Cabos, the Caribbean and with our growing service for the Hawai’ian Islands.”

The same day, new flights begin between Sacramento (SMF) and Kahului (OGG), Maui; Oakland (OAK) and both Lihue (LIH), Kauai, and Kona (KOA); and San Jose (SJC) and Lihue and Kona.

Southwest also announced other routes to Hawai’i begin Nov. 10, rather than next year as previously planned. The routes include flights between Sacramento and Honolulu (HNL) and inter-island service between Honolulu and Lihue.

“Demand is strong for our Hawai’i service,” said Adam Decaire, vice president, network planning, Southwest.

The Island of the Knights

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
