Southwest Airlines is adding 49 new flights across the U.S., with half beginning November 12 and the other half February 5, 2006.
The first round includes a number of new flights from New Orleans, including two daily round-trips to Dallas Love Field, Texas, Nashville, Tennessee, Orlando, Florida and Tampa Bay, Florida.
New flights will also be offered from Las Vegas, Nevada, with daily round-trips operating to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Providence, Rhode Island, Spokane, Washington and St. Louis, Missouri.
Special low fares apply to the Las Vegas service, starting from $69 one-way and available for purchase until December 8 for travel from November 12 through December 15.
New routes beginning February 5, 2006 include two additional daily round-trips between Oakland and San Diego, California and an additional daily round-trip between Kansas City, Missouri and Tampa, Florida.
Southwest says the expansion is due to increasing demand from passengers for more flights, who it says are traveling at “record rates”.
