Southwest Airlines Begins Service in Denver (DIA)
January 3, 2006, Southwest Airlines (NYSE: LUV) has started its new service at Denver International Airport (DIA).
"Denver has been a missing link in Southwest's system for too long, and we've known the demand for Southwest Airlines service is strong in Colorado," said Gary Kelly, Southwest Airlines Chief Executive Officer.
Southwest Airlines begins its Denver service today with 13 daily nonstop flights to the following cities: Chicago Midway (four daily), Las Vegas (five daily), and Phoenix (four daily).
Beginning March 4, 2006, Southwest Airlines will offer new nonstop service between Denver and Baltimore/Washington (one daily nonstop departure) and new nonstop service between Denver and Salt Lake City (four daily nonstop departures).
With the addition of Denver, Southwest Airlines now offers nearly 3,000 daily flights to 62 cities in 32 states.
