KEY WEST (AP) – Getting from Margaritaville to the ‘Big Easy’ has never been easier.

On Saturday, Southwest Airlines began direct non-stop0 flights from Key West International Airport to Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport.

Scheduled flight times are less than two hours and passengers travel on a Boeing 737-700 aircraft.

Southwest joined other airlines serving Key West last November, when it assumed nonstop Orlando and Tampa Bay routes previously operated by AirTran Airways.
