Southwest Airlines and AirTran Airways today each released flight schedules for January 8, 2012, through March 9, 2012. Today’s schedule release reflects the first effort by Southwest and AirTran to coordinate published schedules. While the airlines’ networks are not connected at this point, both airlines are working together to publish the best flight schedules to the places Customers want to go.
The schedule coordination is a first effort by both airlines to maximize operations and prepare for full integration. Southwest Airlines has also continued to optimize its network to better match capacity to demand. Customers will see some shifts in capacity due to the typical slowing of demand in the winter months matching supply of seats with passenger demand, and continued pruning of unproductive flying due to high fuel costs. Southwest is pleased to announce some additional routes coming into the schedule. To book Southwest flights through March 9, 2012, please visit: www.southwest.com.
