Southwest Airlines signaled in the spring that it would add South Carolina to its route map, but details were only recently released. Beginning on March 13, Southwest will fly from both Charleston (CHS) and Greenville-Spartanburg (GSP). From Charleston, there’ll be daily nonstops to Baltimore/Washington, Chicago/Midway, Nashville and Houston/Hobby. From GSP, there’ll be nonstops to those four cities and a daily flight to Orlando, too. Midweek fares will start as low as $59 one-way for the first two months of service.
American Eagle, American Airlines’ regional carrier, will launch Miami-Cleveland flights on November 18.
JetBlue Airways continues to ramp up service to warm-weather island destinations. Among its newly announced operations: daily flights between its New York/Kennedy hub and Providenciales, Turks & Caicos, (PLS) starting February 17; Saturday-only service between Boston and PLS beginning February 19; and daily nonstops from Jacksonville, Florida, to San Juan starting on May 19.
