“This is a perfect fit for Southwest because we are all about Customer convenience,” said Sally Harbeson, manager of business development. “The addition of Anheuser-Busch Adventure Parks tickets to our already convenient air, car, and hotel options make planning a vacation or quick getaway that much easier.”
Southwest has been a sponsor of SeaWorld since 1988 and has three planes in its fleet painted in the image of Shamu the whale. In 2003, the relationship between Anheuser-Busch Adventure Parks and Southwest Airlines (NYSE: LUV) expanded when Southwest became the Official Airline of all seven of the company`s parks. In 1995, Southwest launched the first web site in the airline industry. Today, southwest.com is considered the largest airline web site and ranks as one of the largest e-commerce sites with the likes of Amazon.com. Southwest now estimates that more than 50 percent of its annual revenues—in excess of $2 billion—is generated through online bookings via southwest.com.
Southwest currently operates nearly 2,800 daily flights to 59 airports in 58 cities in 30 states. Southwest employs more than 35,000 people nationwide.
