New Flight Added to El Paso Airport Takes You Right to Disney
You read that right! El Paso International Airport has added some flights - and they both can take you to the happiest place on earth.
Forget about the road trip, the trip from El Paso to Disneyland just got that much easier.
That's because Southwest Airlines just began providing daily non-stop service from El Paso to Long Beach, California.
The inaugural flight to Long Beach happened Tuesday, July 11 and now you can take it any day of the week.
The Long Beach Airport is just a 20-minute drive from Disneyland in Anaheim. It's also another option to access Southern California without the craziness of LAX in Los Angeles.
But if Disneyland isn't what you and the family are looking for, you could take it to the next level and make the trip across the country to Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
Southwest Airlines will also be adding weekly non-stop flights from El Paso to Orlando beginning September 9th. Those flights won't be daily. Instead, they'll operate every Saturday, so it's a good excuse to take the whole week off in between flights.
While you'll have to wait a little longer for the Orlando flights to arrive, you can still get there non-stop by flying Frontier Airlines.
The two new additions from Southwest Airlines mark the 28th and 29th new service announcements since 2015. It's an effort to increase direct flights out of the El Paso International Airport - because who likes layovers? Definitely NOT parents.
Beginning next month, it looks like you can grab flights to Long Beach for $114 each way, or $228 round trip.
As for the first non-stop Southwest Airlines flights beginning in September to Orlando - that will run you $159 on the way there and $199 the following week to get back. That's a cost of $358 round trip. But remember, prices can always change, especially as you get closer to the departure date.
