Friday, Southwest Airlines announced in a press release the addition of 10 new nonstop destinations from Dallas Love Field. Beginning April 8, 2015, travelers through Dallas will have access to 43 destinations.
“With these new flights, Southwest is offering more of the low-fare nonstop travel our Dallas Customers want, at the times of day that makes the most sense to connect them to what’s important in their lives,” said Southwest Chairman, President and CEO Gary Kelly.
With the lifting of the Wright Amendment in Oct., 2014, travelers through Dallas Love gained access to more than double the amount of airports they had before. A new terminal at the airport boasts 20 gates–16 originally for Southwest (they now have 18 after United Airlines withdrew service just weeks ago).
Those two additional gates are part of what brought on the new route announcement.
“Today’s announcement of 13 additional daily flights made possible by the acquisition of those gates, furthers a continuing goal to provide more travel options and low-fare competition for consumers in the Dallas market,” the company stated in the release.
