    Southwest Airlines Connects the Dots With More Nonstop Flights; Airline Adds Flights in Key Markets With Discounted Fares

    DALLAS, Dec. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Southwest Airlines (NYSE: LUV) continues connecting the dots on its route map by introducing nonstop flights between the following key cities beginning April 6, 2003.

    -- Two daily nonstop flights between Phoenix and Detroit.
    -- One weekend-only flight between Reno and Burbank.
    -- One weekend-only flight between Reno and San Diego.


    The airline also will add one daily nonstop flight each way between the following cities:

    -- Between Baltimore/Washington and Austin (for a total of two daily
    roundtrips).
    -- Between Baltimore/Washington and Phoenix (for a total of five daily
    roundtrips).
    -- Between Baltimore/Washington and San Antonio (for a total of two daily
    roundtrips).
    -- Between Baltimore/Washington and West Palm Beach (for a total of
    four daily roundtrips).
    -- Between Chicago Midway and Houston Hobby (for a total of three daily
    roundtrips).
    -- Between Phoenix and Raleigh-Durham (for a total of two daily
    roundtrips).


    "In today's economy, business connections mean everything. At Southwest, that means it's not what you know, but where you go," said Joyce Rogge, Southwest's senior vice president of marketing. "By connecting the dots, we're adding service to places our Customers want to go."

    Southwest is offering a discounted fare of $99 each way for the daily nonstop service between Detroit and Phoenix available for purchase now through April 6, 2003. The airline is offering a fare of $59 each way for the nonstop service between Reno and Burbank or San Diego available for purchase now through April 12, 2003. Both fares are good for travel on the nonstop service only through the end of Southwest's published schedule (currently June 6, 2003). Tickets must be purchased at least seven days prior to departure and within one day of making reservations. Roundtrip purchase and an overnight stay are required. Seats are limited and may not be available on some flights that operate during peak travel times, such as Easter weekend. Tickets are nonrefundable, but unused tickets may be applied toward the purchase of future travel on Southwest Airlines (except for tickets purchased through the Southwest Airlines Group Tickets program). Fares do not include a federal segment tax of $3 per takeoff and landing. These fares also do not include airport-assessed passenger facility charges of up to $9 roundtrip or federal September 11th Security Fees of up to $5 roundtrip per person. Fares are subject to change until ticketed, and any change in itinerary could result in an increase in the fare.

    Southwest Airlines is the nation's fourth largest carrier in terms of Customer boardings. The airline serves 59 airports in 58 cities in 30 states and operates nearly 2,800 daily departures nationwide.

      Jay,

      I am a current employee of SWA. I am also in the hiring pool for pilots. I'm sorry it took so long to reply but I'm currently finishing up my type rating course. The way I figure it is that Mexico and Canada might happen in the next 5-7 years....depending on how the economy goes. Europe is a long shot,but we never say never here......nobody thought we were gonna do transcons but look we're announcing our second one. I truly love working for this airline.....before this I flew for American Eagle and truly hated it because of management's treatment of all the employee groups. At SWA I management truly trying to do right by everyone...so maybe I get a little starry eyed but like I said the next 10 years are gonna be fun for SWA and I for one am glad to be hear. From my viewpoint I could see SW flying to RIC,COS,MKE,CHS,FAT,YYZ,YVR,YWG,YUL,YEG,MEX,CUN,MZT,&SJD among other places but again thats just my viewpoint....you can challege it if you want.

        I am not trying to get into an arguement CanyonBlue, even though you work for WN. I just don't see International flights ever for your company. Southwest is all about planes in the air, that won't happen with quick your famous quick turn-arounds at Intl. destinations........

          On this topic of Southwest comming to ABE, I had read that Southwest had talked about flights to TTN(Trenton) which has not seen real action since Eastwind airlines pulled out in late '99. To me, this makes perfect sence, because 1) Southwest would have the entire airport to themselves and 2)TTN is closer to Philly than ABE. Works for me.

            I do agree that Southwest needs to expand more into the Northeast region, but right now is not the time. They need to figure themselves out after the baggage screeners siuation was put into effect. But where are people getting info of the new airport??? I looked over SWA websites and recieved NOTHING!!

            Canyon Blue- PLEASE CHECK YOUR PM!!!
