Today Southwest announced that as of November 3, 2019, it will be ending all of its flights out of Newark, New Jersey. The decision is a result of the continued grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX 8, which Southwest also announced it is removing from its flight schedule through January 5, 2020. Passengers that had flights out of Newark can opt for a refund or you can rebook your flight as Southwest will still fly out of LaGuardia, Long Island/Islip and even Philadelphia wouldn’t be too far away.

Southwest has been hit harder than others by the Boeing 737 MAX 8 situation because they operated 34 of the aircraft, more than any other US airline. With so many planes out of commission it has had to delay its planned expansion of flights to Hawaii, but now they have announced that new routes to Hawaii will be on sale in August 2019. Unfortunately, we don’t have any more details on the Hawaii flights.

The airline also announced plans to begin service to Cozumel, Mexico. Depending on how long it takes to get regulatory approval, the flights to Cozumel (from Houston) should begin in early 2020.
