BRIEF: Southwest Airlines Unveils Missouri One Livery

On Wednesday, Southwest Airlines revealed “Missouri One,” a tribute to the “Show-Me State” for 30 years of service.

“Kansas City and St. Louis have been vital cities in our network for more than 30 years,” founder Gary Kelly said to an enthusiastic crowd. “I couldn’t think of a better way to ‘show’ our love to our Employees, Customers, and friends in the great state of Missouri than by dedicating this high-flying salute to them!”

The unveiling occurred at Aviation Technical Services in Kansas City–a business Southwest has partnered with for over 35 years. Kansas City was the first city in Missouri the airline began service to.

After the ceremony in Kansas City, Missouri One continued on to St. Louis for more festivities including Mayor Francis Slay.

“We’ve always valued the enduring partnership between the state of Missouri and Southwest Airlines,” said Governor Jay Nixon. “As a tribute to 30 years of quality service by Southwest and Missouri’s proud aerospace legacy, this magnificent plane will showcase the Show-Me State’s aerospace strength around the world.”
