Southwest Airlines is expanding its service plan for Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport next year with two additional nonstop destinations, Las Vegas and Phoenix, with roundtrip flights to begin on 10 March 2012.
On 22 August, Southwest announced it would begin service to the Atlanta market on 12 February 2012, with 15 daily nonstop flights to five destinations: Baltimore/Washington, Chicago Midway, Denver, Houston Hobby, and Austin, Texas.
"An expansion like this quickly solidifies our commitment to the Atlanta market before we’ve actually started service there," declared Bob Jordan, Southwest Airlines executive vice president of strategy and planning and AirTran Airways president. "We are proud to showcase our robust route map connecting the Atlanta market to more than 50 Southwest cities."
