    Southwest Airlines announced that new service between Houston Hobby and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport will begin Aug. 4, 2013. The airline initially will operate one daily roundtrip flight between the two cities.

    To celebrate the new service, the carrier announced introductory $149 one-way fares between Houston and Washington, DC available today through May 24, 2013, at 11:59 p.m. in the respective time zone of the originating city. Travel on August 4, 2013 through November 1, 2013. Travel valid only on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. Fares valid on nonstop service only. See full fare rules below.

    "This new option on Southwest Airlines brings our Legendary Customer Service and Low Fares to tens of thousands of Customers who will travel the route each year between Reagan National and Houston Hobby," said Ron Ricks, Southwest Airlines Executive Vice President & Chief Legal & Regulatory Officer. "We owe great thanks to the thousands of Southwest Employees and Community Partners who joined a chorus of consumers asking that we be able to offer this needed service."

    The U.S. Department of Transportation recently awarded slot exemptions for this service by selecting Southwest's application over competing applications by other airlines to serve other cities from Reagan National Airport.
