Flights to San Francisco will depart Austin-Bergstrom International Airport at 3:30 pm, arriving at San Francisco International Airport (SFO) at 5:25 pm.

Southwest will add two nonstop flights to the East Coast from Oakland, starting next year.

The new Sacramento route will depart Austin at 7:55 pm; return flights will leave Sacramento International Airport (SMF) at 6:30 am.

The new destinations include daily flights to San Jose and Sacramento and a Saturday flight to Oakland.

By next April, Southwest will have over 120 departures on peak travel days.

Carrying more passengers to, from, and within the great state of California1, Southwest is thanking its loyal Golden State Customers with even more flights including almost 20 new nonstop routes and increasing frequency to 27 existing routes as well as opening new global gateways.

Southwest hopes to capitalise on its strong customer base in California, says the airline's chief revenue officer Andrew Watterson on the sidelines of the Boyd Group International Aviation Forecast Summit.
