The same day, increased flights begin between Dallas and Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood, Oakland (San Francisco Bay Area), and Santa Ana/Orange County.

"With these new flights, Southwest is offering more of the low-fare nonstop travel our Dallas Customers want, at the times of day that makes the most sense to connect them to what's important in their lives," said Gary Kelly, Southwest's Chairman, President & CEO.

The carrier answered the call of the many thousands of air travel consumers who have benefited from lower fares and the convenience of long-distance flying from Dallas Love Field by announcing last month it had acquired the rights to two additional Love Field gates, providing the opportunity to add destinations and more nonstop flights. Today's announcement of 13 additional daily flights made possible by the acquisition of those gates, furthers a continuing goal to provide more travel options and low-fare competition for consumers in the Dallas market.  Today's announcement brings Southwest's service at Love Field to 166 daily flights.
