Southwest Launches Cargo Operations from Hobby

Southwest Airlines launched its new international cargo programme from William P. Hobby Airport on July 15 with a flight to Mexico City, adding to the growing cargo operations for Houston Airports.

The inaugural flight to Mexico City is only the beginning. Later this year, Southwest intends to add cargo services on routes between the US and Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, and Cabo San Lucas/Los Cabos, and will add other countries to its international cargo network throughout the remainder of the year.

This past spring, Southwest Cargo rolled out its new back office and point of sale system, Southwest Cargo Suite. The suite of products and customer-facing solutions laid the foundation for this month’s start of the carrier’s international shipping programme.
