Southwest Salutes Ten Years at RDU

Frequent Flyer A

Today, 103 RDU Employees are celebrating Southwest's tenth year of service at Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) with a patriotic-themed party.  Employees and Customers will wave American flags high as Southwest donates canned food items and ten roundtrip tickets to the USO (United Service Organizations).

“Southwest Airlines is proud to salute our RDU Employees for ten wonderful years,” said RDU Station Leader Greg Golden. “These Employees exemplify the SOUTHWEST SPIRIT every day while serving the people of North Carolina.”

SWA is also facilitating “gate games” for red, white, and blue prizes, and hosting a “push-up contest” for Customers to win two roundtrip tickets on Southwest Airlines.
