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 southwest.com.

I'm glad to see Southwest finally get to Newark as my sister lives about 45 minutes away. I figured Chicago was going to be among the first cities to get service (I live here). Are there plans to include Detroit in the Newark expansion plans? My Mom lives there and despises Delta (and its high fares). Give your DTW fliers more choices please!

Great work Bill. You've got to be a kid in a candy store thinking about all the possibilities AirTran is going to give you. Hope the company gives you a bunch of 'outside the box' thinkers. Stuff that had never been possible. Must be fun (but stressful) coming to work these days.
