Happy Frequent Flyer Day! If you are someone who frequently flies, this day is for you. Maybe the best way to celebrate today is by enjoying all your perks from the points you accumulated?

Cool fact: It was (now defunct) Texas International Airlines that established the first mileage-based Frequent Flyer Program (F.F.P.) in 1979. Then, other airlines caught on and the rest is history! Happy flying! ✈️

Today marks 44 years that @southwestair has served the Sunport and all of New Mexico!

In 1980, after just leaving Texas for the first time a year earlier, Southwest opened three stations (Oklahoma City, Tulsa, and Albuquerque) in three consecutive days the first week of April. It was a period of rapid expansion, and helped take their young company all the way to the west coast and beyond.

Here are some other fun stats:
•They have been flying the New Mexico One plane, in various aircrafts, since 1995.
•In 2023 they flew 1,216,066 PAX (passengers)
•So far they have flown 290,900 PAX this year and the numbers keep rising…

We are so grateful you are here and can’t wait to see what the future holds. Happy anniversary!

Our team is still reeling from last week’s trip to Bogota, Columbia for the ‘Routes Americas’ conference. This is the only air service development forum uniting the Americas, bringing together senior decision-makers from the region’s leading airlines, airports and other aviation stakeholders.

When we decided to go showcase Albuquerque and all of New Mexico to the rest of the Americas, we knew we needed to call in the pros and they came through, in full force! We are beyond grateful to @theahcnm and @visitabq for their amazing efforts in this partnership. We traveled and met with people from all over the world as a team and got to really show off what makes our city and state so fantastic.

We had one of the best booths at the whole event and what really elevated our presence and got people to take notice was the powerhouse that is Jason Younis (@metalsmytheshop). He’s a tinsmith, he is a flutist and just extraordinary individual. We could not have found a better promoter of New Mexico!

We are so full of gratitude for these amazing partnerships, a solid gold team, and so proud of this place we call home.

As a reminder, we currently fly nonstop to 29 destinations across the nation, but we are always working more than you know on getting more flights for our sweet Sunport to grow! ☺️

Today is… #NationalRenewableEnergyDay!
So, in honor of that, let’s look at some stats!

☀️ In 2023 – the Sunport generated 2,164,844 kWh of power. 🌞

💡 There is ongoing conversion of conventional lighting to LEDs which save approximately 70% of energy. ♻️

✈️ Several airlines use electric ground support equipment for their operations instead of gas power. ⚡️
