Southwest Airlines Begins Nonstop Flights to Norfolk, Virginia from San Diego International Airport

Monday, June 7, 2021

Today, Southwest Airlines began nonstop service to Norfolk, Virginia via Norfolk International Airport (ORF) from San Diego International Airport (SAN). The route operates one flight daily, excluding Saturdays.

“This new nonstop route provides convenient and time-saving access for Navy personnel, their families, and anyone else with connections to Southern California and the greater Hampton Roads area of Virginia,” said Kimberly Becker, San Diego County Regional Airport Authority President and CEO. “We thank Southwest Airlines for this new route and their continued commitment to SAN.”

This route is the only year-round service offered between the two cities. During the summer of 2019, Southwest Airlines offered nonstop flights between Norfolk and San Diego which were popular due to the Navy connection between two cities – San Diego’s Navy base and Norfolk’s Naval Station.
