Southwest to offer flights from Santa Barbara to 3 cities this spring

Posted at 7:31 AM, Jan 21, 2021

Flights to Las Vegas, Denver and Oakland on Southwest Airlines will be available from the Santa Barbara Airport starting this spring.

Southwest announced last month it would begin offering flights in and out of Santa Barbara.

The flights on Boeing 737-700s and 737-800s are set to begin April 12 with five departures daily, which includes three to Las Vegas, one to Denver and one to Oakland.

“We know we’ve been an attractive market for Southwest, but it took the shake-up of the industry as the result of the COVID-19 pandemic to provide the impetus to enter the market,” said Airport Director Henry Thompson. “Whatever the reason, it’s our region that stands to benefit.”
