Southwest will resume nonstop flights from San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to Chicago-Midway and Dallas Love Field, according to airport officials and Southwest.

The nonstop service to Chicago-Midway and seasonal nonstop service to Dallas Love Field will begin on June 4, 2024, according to Southwest and SFO spokesperson Doug Yakel.

Southwest will operate two Chicago-Midway flights per day Monday through Friday, one daily on Saturday and Sunday. Dallas-Love will be seasonal, with one flight per week on Saturdays, Yakel said.

In addition to the resumed service, Southwest will add more flights from SFO to Denver, Las Vegas and Los Angeles starting the same day.

Southwest flies out of SFO’s Harvey Milk Terminal 1. Tickets for nonstop flights from SFO to Dallas Love Field in June started around $238, and to Chicago at $199.

Southwest also launched nonstop daily flights from Oakland International Airport to Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport in September.

The expansion of Southwest flights from the Bay Area comes after the airline announced it would end flights between San Francisco and Burbank on Jan. 7, 2024.

Southwest will continue its nonstop flights to Hollywood Burbank from Oakland International and San Jose International airports. United Airlines, the largest carrier at SFO, will continue flying nonstop to Hollywood Burbank from San Francisco.

Alaska Airlines announced in July it would begin nonstop flights three times a day between SFO and Hollywood Burbank on Dec. 14.
