Southwest Airlines announced on April 30 that it will add several new nonstop flights flying out of Boise Airport this summer. Included among the mix of new routes is nonstop service to Orange County and Dallas Love Field. The airline will also bring back daily service to Chicago-Midway, San Diego and San Jose, along with increased service 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 on Southwest start on June 6, less than a month away. All of the flights will use Boeing 737 aircraft. Three of the new flights will be seasonal, only running in the summer for now; they include one daily flight to Chicago Midway airport, one flight daily from from Sunday through Friday to Dallas Love Field and one flight daily to Orange County-John Wayne Airport.
In addition, the airline is adding one trip a day on year-round flights to San Diego and San Jose. Southwest will increase the number of flights to Las Vegas from two to three on the peak days of Monday, Thursday and Friday.
With the additions of Chicago Midway and Dallas Love Field, the Boise Airport will now have nonstop service to 27 destinations across the United States, ten of which are serviced by Southwest.

For those with a trip in the new future, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has extended the requirement for face masks for all individuals on all forms of transportation and travel facilities throughout the United States, including at airports, onboard commercial aircraft, on over-the-road buses, and on commuter bus and rail systems through September 13. Restrictions were originally scheduled to expire on May 11 but were pushed back after the COVID-19 surges in April. Mask exemptions for children under two and for adults with eligible disabilities will still be in effect.
