Traveling from Louisville.

Southwest Airlines is proud to serve Louisville International Airport.

Though the fields of Kentucky bluegrass are lush in blue-purple tones, there’s plenty of color to see in the natural wonders across the U.S. Experience the splendor of the Southwest, a haven for outdoor enthusiasts where national parks abound with towering rock formations and other unique sources of natural beauty. From rust-red cliffs cut through by crystal-clear water, to canyon walls that cradle pueblo ruins, this region is full of stunning scenery and geologic spectacles. Discover thriving desert metropolises where you can try globally informed dishes made with locally sourced produce, tour galleries where the work of local artists adorn the walls, and take in the lofty skylines.

For travelers who prefer cooler temperatures, a snowy mountain destination is a must. Spend your vacation on the slopes where the ski terrain ranges from wide open bowls to steep alpine chutes. When you’re not shredding some fresh powder, enjoy a peaceful evening in the lodge, sipping hot cocoa and staying warm by an open fire.

If fun in the sun seems more ideal, then a beachfront excursion could be just what you need. Relax on shores with white sand, warm water, and idyllic views. Whether it’s watching dolphins frolic in the surf, biking through a nature preserve, or kicking back on a serene island beach with a good book, it’s easy to find a piece of paradise.

Discover what the world has to offer outside of Louisville. Southwest can take you there from Louisville International Airport. And when you fly with Southwest, you can earn Rapid Rewards® points and find alluring trip add-ons like tours and bundles from Southwest Airlines® Experiences. We aim to make the booking process simple from flight selection to boarding. When you fly out of Louisville, you’ll understand what makes the Southwest® Experience exceptional.
