SYRACUSE, NY – The Syracuse Regional Airport Authority (SRAA) has announced Southwest Airlines will launch daily, nonstop service from Syracuse Hancock International Airport (SYR) to Orlando International Airport (MCO) in Orlando, FL. The seasonal service is scheduled to commence on October 5th of this year.
This seasonal daily Syracuse-Orlando service expands upon the airline’s existing year-round Saturday-only nonstop service. Southwest began nonstop flights from Syracuse to the highly sought-after Central Florida family vacation haven in November 2021 when the low-cost carrier first launched regularly scheduled operations at SYR.
“We are thrilled our partner Southwest Airlines has chosen to continue growing their offerings here in Syracuse,” said SRAA Executive Director Jason Terreri. “Orlando is easily our community’s top market, and we appreciate Southwest’s efforts to meet that demand for both leisure and business travelers alike.”
The daily flights are scheduled to depart early each afternoon from Syracuse, conveniently positioning business travelers in Orlando for early evening events. Leisure travelers will also greatly benefit from this timing as it affords families the opportunity to start enjoying their vacation on day one.
In addition to the seasonal daily Orlando, FL service, the low-cost carrier provides three flights daily to Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI) in Baltimore, MD providing convenient connections to over 60 destinations. The carrier also operates seasonal weekly flights to Tampa International Airport (TPA) in Tampa, FL.
