Just recently, Southwest Airlines announced new service to the following cities:

  • Akron/Canton, OH (begins August 12, 2012) – direct flights to/from:
    • Chicago (Midway)
    • Denver
  • Dayton, OH (begins August 12, 2012) – direct fights to/from:
    • Denver
  •  Des Moines, IA (begins September 30, 2012) – direct flights to/from:
    • Chicago (Midway)
  • Key West, FL (begins November 4, 2012) – direct flights to/from:
    • Tampa
    • Orlando
  • Washington, DC (begins July 8, 2012) – direct flights to/from:
    • Austin

I am excited to see Southwest adding more cities and expanding their presence. Personally, I am most happy to see Key West as getting there can be challenging (flying into Miami and driving 4 hours) or expensive. While the Southwest flights are still around $400 roundtrip from NY, utilizing my Southwest companion pass makes it an inexpensive weekend away!

I am keeping my fingers crossed that they will soon pick up some of AirTrans Caribbean destinations as that would be a huge advantage for Southwest. While I am not holding my breathe as mergers typically take a few years, I am very excited for that benefit.

Good to see some more competition for Key West. Although it is a good use of Delta points since the ticket is so expensive.
