southwest airlinesSouthwest Airlines has announced that it will add 16 additional flights, including service to eight new nonstop cities, from Dallas Love Field

The new service is available for purchase immediately and will begin August 9. With the new flights, Southwest will offer a total of 180 weekday departures to 50 nonstop destinations from Dallas Love Field.

The new nonstop cities are:

- Boston Logan          
- Charlotte                   
- Detroit                          
- Omaha                           
- Philadelphia                    
- Pittsburgh                          
- Raleigh/Durham
- Salt Lake City

Also on August 9, Southwest will offer additional nonstop service between Dallas and Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore/Washington, Houston (Hobby), Little Rock, Chicago (Midway), and Seattle/Tacoma.  Finally, Southwest will upgrade the Saturday-only nonstop service between Dallas and Charleston, South Carolina, that is scheduled to begin April 11, to daily service on August 9.

The new flights are made possible through a previously announced long-term sublease agreement giving Southwest the use of two gates from United Airlines in the newly rebuilt 20-gate facility. Airfield construction continues with additional taxiway capacity scheduled to open in mid-March and mid-July and additional ramp space scheduled to open in late August and in November of this year. Southwest continues its fleet modernization efforts to replace Classic aircraft with more fuel-efficient and longer-range aircraft with winglets resulting in quieter aircraft operation for neighborhoods and communities served by the carrier.
