BOONE COUNTY, Ky. (FOX19) - Southwest Airlines announced Wednesday it’s expanding service between Cincinnati and three cities: Orlando, Florida; Tampa, Florida; and Phoenix, Arizona.

The news comes a week after the low-cost airline announced it would soon offer a new flight from CVG to Houston, Tx., the fourth nonstop Southwest route after Baltimore/Washington, Chicago Midway and Denver.

Service to Orlando, Tampa and Phoenix ill now operate daily, where previously it had operated on only on weekends.

The expanded service will begin in early 2021 and will run through at least April 11, 2021, Southwest says.

“We have a wonderful partnership with Southwest and are grateful they continue to both expand destinations and increase flight frequencies from CVG,” CVG CEO Candace McGraw said. “Southwest’s commitment to CVG is a testimony to the strength and continued vibrancy of our region.”
