Southwest Airlines will discontinue flights between Tampa International Airport and Key West in June, saying it’s not making money on the route.
Southwest will discontinue all of its flights out of Key West, Branson, Mo., and Jackson, Miss., although the only impact on Tampa is with the Key West route, which the airline gained from its merger with AirTran Airways.
Silver Airways also offers daily round trips between Key West and Tampa. Cuba Travel Services will inaugurate Tuesday flights with Boeing 737s between Tampa International Airport and Havana today.
It is the 11th weekly round-trip between Tampa and Cuba destinations — Havana, Santa Clara and Holguin — scheduled for December.
