"At Southwest the bare facts are simply that two checked bags*, airport check-in, carry-on bags, ticket changes*, non-alcoholic drinks, and of course snacks are NOT so-called optional services, "said Andrew Watterson, Southwest Airlines Senior Vice President of Network and Revenue Management. "We believe that it's not in the holiday spirit to charge bag fees for the first two checked bags*, much less even higher bag fees, during the holiday season."
These new flights bring even more access to Customers flying from the Twin Cities with one-stop connections and same-plane service to more than 60 nonstop destinations served from Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. These include flights to the Caribbean and Latin America, including Southwest's newest destination, Liberia, Costa Rica.
