Southwest Airlines-subsidiary AirTran Airways will begin daily service between Denver and Cabo San Lucas from 10 March 2013.

"As we continue preparations to connect the Southwest and AirTran route networks beginning early next year, we are excited to add another nonstop travel option to Mexico alongside our strong portfolio of domestic nonstop service in Denver," says Bob Jordan, executive vice-president and chief commercial officer at Southwest and president of AirTran, in a statement.

The US Department of Transportation (DOT) awarded the low-cost carrier the authority to operate daily flights on the route earlier in December. AirTran replaced Republic Airlines on the route.
