It’s time to get a jump on holiday flight planning. Southwest Airlines has opened up its booking schedule (previously November 3) with an extension through January 6, 2019. This extended schedule over the holiday period opens up a handful of new nonstop options from Southwest on newly announced routes.

Schedule Extension Brings Nonstop Links to New City Pairings

With this extension, several of the new routes are ready for booking, especially ones out of its newly leased slots from Alaska Airlines at LaGuardia (LGA) and Washington DC (DCA). Southwest is also making a push in some more West Coast markets in order to compete and strengthen its connection network before it finally launches its long awaited routes to Hawaii.
