Southwest to Increase the Number of Flights at CCIA Later this Year

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – There is good news to report on airline activity at Corpus Christi International Airport (CCIA). 

For the past couple of months, airlines have been operating reduced schedules at airports across the nation as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and the dramatic slow-down in air travel. Those reductions are slated to continue through the summer. 

Southwest Airlines has published schedules through November and December, which not only restore those reduced flights at CCIA, but include additional flights as well.  

In November, Southwest plans to operate 25-flights per week between CCIA and Houston Hobby. That number was 21-flights a week back in 2019. In December, Southwest will offer 28- flights a week, as compared to 21 the same time last year. That’s an average of four-flights per day.

CCIA is seeing a slow, but steady increase in the number of people coming through the terminal. “We’re seeing promising signs that people are ready to start getting on airplanes again,” said Fred Segundo, Director of Aviation at CCIA. “When it’s time to book your travel, we encourage people to consider flying CCIA,” said Segundo. “The more we use the service that we currently have, the greater our chances of getting more service in the future.”

The reduced schedule for now has Southwest at two-flights a day to Hobby, United Airlines is also at two-flights per day in and out of Houston Bush Intercontinental, and American Airlines is operating an average of three-flights a day to DFW.
