Operating daily from Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, the new routes come just days after Southwest announced plans to serve the Hawaiian Islands in 2018. With the added routes, Turks and Caicos is now the 11th country to be served by Southwest, with the newly initiated service to San Jose and the Dominican Republic bringing the number of Latin American destinations served by Southwest to 10.
