We're continuing to deliver on the promise we first made here at Love Field nearly 44 years ago:  to offer the best flight schedule and airline product, delivered by the best People in our industry, which now includes more than 9,000 Dallas-based Employees," said Gary Kelly, Southwest Airlines Chairman, President & Chief Executive Officer.

Read more about the latest additions to the Dallas Love Field flight schedule on the Company's blog, Nuts About Southwest.

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, which is a collaborative effort between the City of Dallas and Southwest Airlines. 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.
