Southwest adding flights at Lambert


Southwest Airlines said Wednesday it will add nine new daily flights to six new destinations from Lambert-St. Louis International Airport, beginning in May.
The new flights will be open for sale in December, the airline said.
Dallas-based Southwest is filling a gaping hole that American Airlines created in St. Louis with its decision last month to drop 20 destinations from Lambert.

"Our employees saw opportunity and worked vigorously to incorporate additional capacity in the St. Louis market," Gary Kelly, Southwest's chairman, president and CEO, said in a statement.


The new flights consist of:
• Two new daily nonstop roundtrips between St. Louis and Nashville.
• One new daily nonstop roundtrip between St. Louis and Raleigh/Durham.
• One new daily nonstop roundtrip between St. Louis and New Orleans.
• Two new daily nonstop roundtrips between St. Louis and Los Angeles.
• One new daily nonstop roundtrip between St. Louis and Seattle.
• One new daily nonstop roundtrip between St. Louis and San Diego.
• One additional daily nonstop roundtrip between St. Louis and Minneapolis/St. Paul (nonstop service between those cities launches with two daily roundtrips in January).


Southwest has overtaken American as the top carrier at Lambert, currently operating 72 daily nonstop flights from Lambert with additional or connecting service to 42 cities.
