Traveling internationally with your family, as writer Kathryn Streeter talked about in her article “Family travel helped our kids make their own memories, not simply step into ours”, is a lot more affordable and convenient than most Houstonians might think.
In fact, SWA is credited with revitalizing Houston Hobby (HOU) airport in the 1970’s and almost half a century later, still going strong by launching it’s international service. Today, Hobby serves more international airports than any other Southwest city.
Southwest’s Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Ryan Green says the ongoing partnership with the City gives Houstonians more choices at better prices.
“We were pleased to launch our international service from Houston Hobby, and in October 2015 we opened a new concourse focused on international service,” Green explained to Houston Family Magazine. He tells us Southwest will launch Saturday-only service to Grand Cayman in June which totals 18 flights between Houston and 10 international destinations.
Green says family is and always has been a core value of SWA. “We each live our purpose daily and that’s to connect folks to what’s important in their lives through friendly, reliable and low-cost air travel. Each of those three elements is important to families,” said Green. “Houston will continue to be a heartbeat for Southwest Airlines.”
