Southwest Airlines Community

Liberty, LUV and the Pursuit … of DCA!

Explorer C

Southwest Airlines wants to provide you the freedom to fly non stop from Washington National Airport (DCA) to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) -- but we need YOUR help to make it happen!

Southwest Airlines has submitted our formal request to the Department of Transportation for permission to fly nonstop from DCA - AUS.  The DCA - AUS market is currently underserved and overpriced, with inadequate travel options for those wanting to fly between these two capital cities.  DCA-AUS flights will produce consumer benefits in the form of fare savings and new travel options in the DCA - AUS markets.  Southwest Airlines has a 40-year history of improving competition, lowering average ticket prices, expanding the market place, and stimulating travel in the markets it enters. 

Additionally, if our request is approved, it opens up more choices for travelers to markets like San Diego, Dallas, and Houston—just to name a few!

Join the growing list of American travelers supporting Southwest’s application, and respectfully request that it be approved by the U.S. Department of Transportation.  Tell the DOT to choose Liberty & LUV with Southwest Airlines service from AUS-DCA by signing our petition at\DCA
