Feeling the Love


Heart One

 

 

Southwest Airlines added nonstop flights from Dallas Love Field to San Francisco and Oakland today, completing — at least for now — an expansion at the city airport that began in October. Dallas-based Southwest has increased its Love Field flights approximately 30 percent since October to 153 daily departures to 33 cities.

 

Love Field statistics released this week show what the end of the Wright Amendment has meant for our favorite in-city airport. Passenger airline traffic soared nearly 37 percent at Love in November — the first full month of expanded flights after flying restrictions ended there — from a year earlier.

 

Much of that increase is from Southwest, but other airlines also have recently expanded at Love. Virgin America, which moved operations from D/FW, offers 13 daily flights to the East and West coasts. And, Delta is now flying larger planes on five daily trips to Atlanta.

 

At Ebby Halliday, we’re thrilled with the growth of both of North Texas’ premier passenger airports, D/FW International and Love Field. To learn more about all our region has to offer, visit the award-winning ebby.com.
