Southwest Airlines expands Atlanta service with 2 new nonstop destinations

Southwest Airlines announced today that the carrier is expanding its service plan for Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport next year with two additional nonstop destinations, Las Vegas and Phoenix. For sale today, the carrier will add daily, roundtrip flights between Atlanta and Las Vegas and Atlanta and Phoenix for travel beginning March 10, 2012.

On Aug. 22, 2011, Southwest announced it would begin service to the Atlanta market on Feb. 12, 2012, with 15 daily nonstop flights to five destinations: Baltimore/Washington, Chicago Midway, Denver, Houston Hobby, and Austin, Texas. The two new destinations open up the country even more for Atlanta travelers—taking Customers farther west.

“An expansion like this quickly solidifies our commitment to the Atlanta market before we’ve actually started service there,” said 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.”
