DALLAS — Fall is in the air and so is new nonstop spring service from Southwest Airlines.

„Our Customers want this service, and we are happy to provide it,“ said Gary Kelly, Southwest Airlines Chief Executive Officer. „We said when we entered Denver, San Francisco, and Philadelphia that it was just the beginning-these new destinations and additional flights continue to prove our commitment to these cities and to prudently growing the Southwest system.“

To highlight this new service, Southwest is offering internet-only low fares in select markets, such as $99 one-way between Denver and San Diego; $99 one-way between San Francisco and Phoenix; $124 one-way between Philadelphia and Austin; $119 one-way between Philadelphia and San Antonio; and $109 one-way between Philadelphia and St. Louis. These 21-day advance purchase fares are available for purchase at southwest.com beginning today, for travel beginning on the dates indicated below through the end of the schedule, currently May 9, 2008:

— Travel beginning March 8, 2008, between San Francisco and Phoenix
— Travel beginning March 17, 2008, between Philadelphia and Austin; between Philadelphia and San Antonio; and between Philadelphia and St. Louis
— Travel beginning April 4, 2008, between Denver and San Diego

In addition to low fares and frequent service, Southwest also offers a better way to board while preserving its open seating philosophy. Saying goodbye to the perceived „cattle call“ and eliminating the need for Customers to „camp-out“ in their boarding line at the gate, Southwest today is assigning all Customers a letter and a number on their Southwest boarding pass when they check in for a flight (for example: A32). This unique combination represents the Customers‘ reserved spot in the boarding line. When a Customer’s boarding group is called, he/she simply finds the designated place in line to board the aircraft. The A group will queue first in two lines: A1-30 on one side of marked columns and A31-60 on the other side, followed by two groups of B, and then the remaining Cs.

„Southwest is all about efficiency — in our operations, in our fares, and in our service. A by-product of efficiency is time, something none of us seem to have enough of. One of our primary goals with our new boarding is to give precious time back to our Customers,“ Kelly said.
