Southwest Airlines Media Day 2010: FREEDOM ARRIVES AT LIBERTY MARCH 27TH!


Southwest will bring our brand of Freedom, Low Fares, and GREAT service to Newark/Liberty International Airport beginning March 27!  Initially, we’ll offer six weekday roundtrips between Newark and Chicago and two daily roundtrips between Newark and St. Louis, with connecting service beyond Chicago and St. Louis to 48 other Southwest destinations.  Later in the year, we’ll be adding even more flights, fully utilizing the 18 pairs of slots we recently acquired—so be on the lookout for more info coming soon!

You’ll find Southwest in Terminal A, where we’ll operate out of A10, A14, and A15.  From Liberty International Airport, it’s super easy to get into Manhattan, with NJ Transit providing frequent, quick, and inexpensive train service from the airport straight into Penn Station in Manhattan.  It’s also right on the New Jersey Turnpike (Man A:  "I'm from New Jersey."  Man B:  "Yeah?  What exit?") so whether you’re heading to the Garden State or the Empire State, Newark will be a great choice!  As always, you can find out more about “The Situation” (ahem…) as well as schedules and fares at
