Southwest Airlines officially opened its new home in Terminal E at Philadelphia International. The recently completed $45 million Terminal E expansion features seven new aircraft gates, a 500-seat holding area, new restrooms, a mini-food court with new concessions, and a new piece of permanent artwork installed as part of the city's Percent for Art Program. Also announced is a new Philadelphia-Boston route beginning June 27, 2010, with fares starting at $59 one-way. 

"This new facility, that now allows us to operate out of one concourse, is a wonderful example of both Southwest Airlines and the City of Philadelphia working together in a public-private partnership to enhance air travel for the entire City," stated Bob Montgomery, Southwest Airlines vice president of properties. "I know all of our hard-working Southwest Employees here in Philadelphia can't wait to continue providing our legendary Customer Service from our new home in Terminal E."

"Southwest's new Philadelphia - Boston route is yet another excellent addition to Philadelphia International Airport's existing non-stop air service lineup," said Mark Gale, CEO of Philadelphia International Airport. "Competition on any of our routes is wonderful news for our patrons as it typically provides a greater choice in product offerings, flight schedules and lower fares. We applaud Southwest's decision to inaugurate this service and are looking forward to its success."
