Southwest Airlines continues major flight expansion from Dallas

Southwest Airlines on Wednesday began operating more time-saving daily itineraries between Dallas Love Field and nine additional cities around the United States (Columbus, Ohio; Indianapolis, Ind.; Memphis, Tenn.; Milwaukee, Wis.; Panama City Beach, Fla.; Portland, Ore.; Sacramento, Calif.; San Jose, Calif.; and Seattle, Wash.) and will launch Saturday-only flights between Dallas and Charleston, S.C., this week.

"These flights continue a major expansion of our offerings from Love Field," said Bob Jordan, Southwest Airlines' Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer. "By the end of the summer, we'll be operating service to 50 destinations nonstop in nearly every region of the country from Dallas."

In addition, Southwest began additional flights between Dallas and Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood, Oakland (San Francisco Bay Area), and Santa Ana/Orange County. The carrier also initiated daily service between San Antonio and Cancun, and between Kansas City International Airport and New York LaGuardia.

Southwest operates more than 3,400 flights a day, serving 94 destinations across the United States and six additional countries. Southwest service to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, begins in June; and subject to government approvals, service to Belize City, Belize begins in October.
