Southwest Airlines and AirTran Airways Announce New Flight Schedules

Recommended Posts

Southwest Airlines and its wholly owned subsidiary AirTran Airways today each released flight schedules for Aug. 12, 2012, through Sept. 28, 2012. While the airlines' networks are not connected at this point, both carriers are working together to publish the best flight schedules to places Customers want to go. Each carrier is adding new nonstop routes with this schedule as outlined below. Additionally, overall daily flight counts for each airline slightly decline due to a slowing of demand coming off the busy summer travel months. Southwest's August and September schedules will offer Customers 3,250 daily flights. AirTran's schedules will offer more than 550 daily flights.
