DALLAS - Southwest Airlines published 16 additional flights, including service to eight new nonstop cities, from Dallas Love Field. The new service is available for purchase immediately, at low fares as shown below, and will begin Aug. 9, 2015. With this latest service enhancement, Southwest will offer a total of 180 weekday departures to 50 nonstop destinations from Dallas Love Field.

Also on August 9, Southwest will offer additional nonstop service between Dallas and Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore/Washington, Houston (Hobby), Little Rock, Chicago (Midway), and Seattle/Tacoma. Finally, Southwest will upgrade the Saturday-only nonstop service between Dallas and Charleston, South Carolina, that is scheduled to begin April 11, 2015, to daily service on August 9.

"With the end of the Wright Amendment and our sublease of two additional Love Field gates, Southwest is thrilled to offer Customers more Dallas flights and nonstop service to 50 destinations. These new travel options and Southwest's low-fare competition will provide enormous benefits to consumers and businesses in Dallas and all the cities we will serve.

The new flights are made possible through a previously announced long-term sublease agreement giving Southwest the use of two gates from United Airlines in the newly rebuilt 20-gate facility, which is a collaborative effort between the City of Dallas and Southwest Airlines. Airfield construction continues with additional taxiway capacity scheduled to open in mid-March and mid-July and additional ramp space scheduled to open in late August and in November of this year. Southwest continues its fleet modernization efforts to replace Classic aircraft with more fuel-efficient and longer-range aircraft with winglets resulting in quieter aircraft operation for neighborhoods and communities served by the carrier.
