Links between Houston, Texas, and Mexico grew stronger this week with new non-stop flights launched by Southwest Airlines.
The low-cost U.S. airline began offering daily flights to Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta and Mexico City, and twice-daily into Cancún.
Southwest used the Cancún flight to inaugurate its new US $146-million, five-gate terminal at Hobby Airport, which opened on Thursday. The new facility, under construction since September 2013, makes Houston one of only three American municipalities with two international airports within its boundaries.
With its Mexico City connection, the company hopes to transport 4,000 passengers a month between Houston and the Mexican capital.
