The carrier routinely adds and drops routes during its seasonal updates. But the latest schedule release features an unusual amount of activity; More than two dozen nonstop routes will begin with the 2017 summer schedule in June, according to information from Southwest.

The highest-profile changes come with the destinations that will join Southwest’s route map, and with the ones that will fall off.

Southwest will begin flying from Cincinnati and from Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islandson June 4.

Southwest will connect Cincinnati to its bases at Baltimore/Washington and Chicago Midway. Southwest’s Grand Cayman service will operate to its base in Fort Lauderdale, pending regulatory approval for that international route.

Cincinnati had long been the biggest metro area that Southwest did not serve, and the airline’s new service was warmly embraced by officials there. The Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) was once one of America’s busiest airports, buoyed by bustling hub for Delta Air Lines. Delta still operates a hub there, but it has sharply reduced its presence – eliminating hundreds of flights and dozens of nonstop routes that it used to fly from Cincinnati — since its merger with Northwest last decade.
