Southwest Airlines has officially announced their service to CVG (Cincinatti, Ohio) today! The long awaited announcement can this afternoon. They’ll have multiple daily flights to both Chicago (MDW) and Baltimore (BWI). Flights start on June 4 and go on sale tomorrow January 5.
The same day they announced the beginning of their CVG service, they’ve also announced the end of their DAY (Dayton, Ohio) Service. Southwest said they’ve decided to leave Dayton and fly to Cincinatti instead. Service to Dayton will end on June 3, a day before service to Cincinatti starts.
I used to drive to Dayton or Columbus to fly Southwest out of Ohio. Now Dayton is more expensive than Cincinnati on most occasions, which is really saying something. When CVG was all Delta it would cost an arm and a leg to fly out of there. The tables have definitely turned.
That’s about what they are for the last one. I’d love to go on the last out of Dayton and the first to Cinncinati but I don’t know if I’ll be able to. How to get to Dayton is also a problem. If we drive, someone else had to come with us to drive our car to CVG since we are flying back to CVG.
