Hooray for Five Years of Service, RSW!

Not applicable

Happy 5th Anniversary, RSW!

It seems like it was just yesterday we opened our operation at Ft. Myers. In the last five years, our nearly 40 Employees at RSW have been working hard and having a little FUN, too!  Ft. Myers was the 61st city in the Southwest system, and we opened with nine daily nonstop departures to five cities. Since then, our service has remained consistent, and we now have ten daily nonstop departures to five cities. The actual anniversary was Saturday, Oct. 2, but we are celebrating today, Tuesday, Oct. 5.

Our Employees and Customers are sure to feel the LUV on this milestone anniversary! We have yummy treats to snack on, and we also have massage therapists in the gate area and breakrooms for everyone to enjoy. Breakrooms are likely filled with laughter and friendly competition today as we have games like Nintendo Wii for Employees to play.

Finally, to honor Southwest’s commitment to the community, RSW Employees are Sharing their Spirit by donating their time and talents to the Harry Chapin Food Bank.

Way to go, RSW--keep up the great work!
