Southwest Airlines launches Summer service additions at Baltimore/Washington International Airport

Carrier to grow service in key BWI nonstop markets throughout 2016.

DALLAS – Southwest Airlines Co. increased its bookable schedule by six daily nonstop trips from Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) every day beginning June 5th and ending Aug. 6th. All additional flights are on sale immediately at Southwest.com. Customers can expect additional service announcements throughout 2016.
This is about enhancing our breadth of service and adding convenience for our Baltimore-Washington-area Customers as we seek to grow in the entire region,” said Andrew Watterson, Senior Vice President Network & Revenue. “Collectively, Southwest offers more service from BWI, Reagan National, and Dulles Airports than any other airline. Our goal—as always—is to respond to what our Customers want. It’s clear Customers in Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Northern Virginia are asking for even more low-fare service with incredible Hospitality and the ‘no surprises’ approach to fees they’ve come to expect during our nearly 23 years of service at BWI. The great news is we’re just getting started.
Effective June 5th through Aug. 6th, 2016, Southwest will offer additional seats in the following existing nonstop markets from BWI:
Sunday-Friday trips to increase by one flight daily:
Baltimore/Washington International Airport to Oakland 1 to 2 trips

Southwest launched international service from BWI in July 2014. International flights initially included Aruba, Montego Bay, Jamaica, Nassau, The Bahamas, Cancun, Mex. and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. During 2015, Southwest inaugurated additional service from BWI to San Jose and Liberia, Costa Rica and Cabo San Lucas, Mex.
Southwest Airlines has served BWI, the Company’s third busiest airport in terms of daily departures, for more than 22 years and currently operates 29 gates. A year’s long partnership with the Maryland Aviation Authority has led to the support of multiple facility improvements, including a new checkpoint and connection between concourses A, B, and C; an expanded ticketing lobby to include a dedicated international ticket counter; and a number of improvements to an international concourse, concourse E, which is currently under construction.
The carrier continues to plan for 2016 year-over-year system wide available seat mile growth in the five to six percent range and continues to be fully committed to fulfilling Customers’ needs whether traveling for Business or Leisure purposes.
