Southwest to add new flights from Boise to Orange Co. & Dallas

Southwest Airlines travelers will soon have new nonstop destinations to choose from the Boise Airport.

The airline added direct service between Boise and Orange County, CA. The new daily flight will start on June 6th, according to Southwest’s online flight schedules.

The flight will depart Boise at about 12:40pm each day of the week, except Sunday when it will leave at 3:25pm. The flight takes just more than two hours.

Passengers headed for Boise from Orange County have a little more complicated schedule. On Sunday, the flight leaves at 3:40pm. On Monday, Thursday and Friday it takes off at 10:50am. On Tuesday and Wednesday it departs at 2:25. And lastly, on Saturday, the flight leaves Orange County at 1pm.

Southwest will join budget airline Allegiant serving the route.

Southwest will also add a nonstop direct flight to Dallas Love Field starting in June. Previously cut service to San Jose, Chicago-Midway and San Diego will return. And the airline will add an additional flight to Las Vegas.

“We’re excited to see Southwest expand its network of flights in Boise, opening up greater air service possibilities for our passengers,” said Boise Airport Director Rebecca Hupp. “This summer, the Boise Airport will have nonstop service to the most destinations in the airport’s history – and more available seats than ever”

The new flights are the latest in a series of announcements. Even with the pandemic slicing air travel dramatically, Boise managed to add multiple new destinations in recent months. This includes a twice-weekly flight toNashville starting in Mayand a daily flight toAtlanta. The airport alsoadded seasonal service to New York City on JetBlue, starting later this year. New service to Austin, TX is also on the way.

The Boise Airport will now offer 27 nonstop destinations.
