LOVE FIELD, TX: February 19, 2018. Southwest Airlines is to begin international airfreight services in May to Mexico City, Cancun, Cabo San Lucas/Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Southwest CargoThe move follows the recent implementation of Southwest Cargo's new POS and back office accounting system Southwest Cargo Suite (SCS).

SCS is expected to replace the airline's current cargo system next month to enable customers make advanced bookings and submit electronic airwaybills.

"By offering the cross-border services that our Customers are looking for, we're able to help meet the needs of businesses throughout the U.S. and soon in Mexico," said Matt Buckley, Southwest Airlines' vice president of Cargo and Charters. "As we enter the international cargo market for the first time, Customers will have more opportunities to experience the friendly and reliable service for which our Cargo Team is known."

Earlier this month the airline announced an employee profit share for the 44th consecutive year, totaling US$543 million for 2017.

"Our employees never lose focus on connecting our customers to what's important, even in a year of great triumphs and great challenges," said Gary Kelly, Southwest chairman and CEO. "They continue to be the primary reason Southwest stands apart from the rest, and it's a pleasure to be able to reward their hard work and dedication to our success."

The 2017 profit share, combined with contributions of US$476 million to individual pension plans, represents a total investment of more than US$1 billion to Southwest's 56,000 employees who currently own more than four percent of the company's outstanding shares.
