ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) – Monroe County Executive Adam Bello announced on Saturday that Southwest
Airlines will add nonstop service from the Frederick Douglass – Greater Rochester International
Airport to Chicago Midway International Airport (MDW) starting June 5, 2022.
Nonstop service on Southwest Airlines from ROC to MDW will be offered every day twice a day, except for
“Chicago is ROC’s 6th largest market and new nonstop service on Southwest to Chicago Midway (MDW) will bring an additional 40% seat capacity to the Chicago-Rochester market,” Bello said. “Connecting through MDW will also bring nearly 20 new one-stop destinations for ROC passengers to connect to and significantly more options for ROC travelers flying on the Southwest network.”
Passengers can begin booking tickets online for the period of June 5, 2022 through September 5, 2022. Bello said strong passenger support of these non-stop flights demonstrates that our community can support additional non-stop service in the future.
Southwest schedules are subject to change based on demand and conditions due to COVID-19.
