Southwest Launches Daily Service to San Diego from MKE

Southwest Airlines launched its new daily nonstop service from Milwaukee County’s General Mitchell International Airport (MKE) to San Diego International Airport (SAN) Sunday. The new MKE-SAN daily nonstop service, which will operate year-round, replaces Southwest’s existing Saturday-only service.

“Southwest’s new nonstop service to San Diego offers both business and leisure travelers, here in Wisconsin and northern Illinois, a great option to reach the west coast,” County Executive Chris Abele said. “We appreciate the wonderful partnership between Southwest Airlines, Mitchell Airport and the community, and we look forward to continued growth.”

With this addition, Southwest now flies to 21 destinations nonstop from Milwaukee. 

“As we’ve grown to become Milwaukee’s largest carrier, we continuously add destinations that our Customers want to go to,” said Ryan Green, Southwest’s Vice President of Marketing. “We pride ourselves on connecting our Customers to what’s important in their lives and we are doing that through friendly, reliable, and low-cost air travel complete with Customer-friendly policies.”
