Southwest branched beyond their traditional destinations like Orlando and Las Vegas earlier this year to include international destinations such as the Bahamas, Montego Bay, Punta Cana, Cancun, Mexico City, Los Cabos, and soon you can Belize City to that growing list!

Yesterday Southwest announced the good news that not only are they adding Belize City to their destinations board, but they have officially filed to fly from Houston Hobby to:

  • Cancun
  • Mexico City
  • Puerto Vallarta
  • San Jose del Cabo/Los Cabos, Mexico
  • San Jose, Costa Rica
  • Belize City, Belize

They are aiming to start service from Houston Hobby to these destinations in October 2015.

This is great news not just for those in the Houston area who want some more international flight options, but really for anyone who is a points junkie since the Southwest Companion Pass is the perfect way to really stretch points and have your family travel for much less!

  1. Hey Summer,

    When applying for 2 cards (Personal and business) to get the companion pass do you normally apply to both on the same day or do you let some time pass in between applications?

  2. Wonder when they’ll add restrictions to the Companion Pass?? It’s already extremely generous for domestic travel….international is simply too good to be true.

  3. Thanks for the good news! Any insight into whether international SW flights will be leaving out of LAX or other US cities as well?
