Southwest Airline Relaunches Another Route to Aruba

Read Time:46 Seconds

Jun 20. Southwest Airlines has relaunched another nonstop route to the Dutch Caribbean Island of Aruba, Caribbean Journal has confirmed.

The low-cost carrier has officially resumed nonstop service between Orlando International Airport and Aruba’s Queen Beatrix International Airport.

Southwest Airlines’ route between Fort Lauderdale and Aruba has still not yet resumed, however. While Southwest was on a broad expansion push to the Caribbean before the onset of the pandemic, especially out of Florida, that growth seems to have slowed in the last two years as competing low-cost carriers, including Frontier Airlines, have massively ramped up their Caribbean networks.

The relaunch is a big boost for Aruba, one of the best performing destinations amid the pandemic. According to a recent report from ForwardKeys shared by the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association, Aruba is among the most “resilient” destinations in the wider Caribbean, based on confirmed arrivals for the summer.
