Southwest Airlines will discontinue its Mexico City routes as of March 30, the airlines announced.

The Dallas-based economy airlines, which first began offering daily flights between Mexico City and Houston, Texas, in 2014, said that the decision to cut the service was based on the fact that the route had not proven sufficiently profitable.

In a statement released on Friday, Jan. 25, Southwest said the planes that were being used for the Mexico City route will now be reallocated for “better opportunities within our existing route network.”

Southwest will continue its flights to other Mexican cities, specifically Cabo San Lucas, Cancun and Puerto Vallarta.
