Southwest Airlines is solidifying its position as San Diego’s dominant air carrier with the announcement Monday that it is adding year-round nonstop flights to Puerto Vallarta, Newark and El Paso.

Just a few months after debuting its nonstop service to Cabo San Lucas, Southwest said Monday it will now add a twice weekly flight to Puerto Vallarta on Saturdays and Sundays, starting March 10 of next year. The decision was driven by strong interest expressed by its customers, said Southwest officials.

“The international service we are providing has really resonated with our customers, and Cabo was the most popular destination our customers requested, and Puerto Vallarta was next,” said Leah Koontz, Vice President Controller for the airline. “San Diego is our fourth international gateway out of California.”

The only other air carrier flying nonstop between San Diego and Puerto Vallarta is Alaska Airlines.
