    DALLAS, Texas - Southwest Airlines is excited to announce that LUV has officially landed in Iowa with service at Des Moines International Airport (DSM). Dozens of Southwest Employees are on hand to celebrate the long-anticipated arrival with the Des Moines Community and great State of Iowa.

    Southwest attributes its entrance into the market, officially beginning tomorrow, Sept. 30, to the roots planted by its wholly-owned subsidiary AirTran Airways. Today, AirTran serves two daily departures to Milwaukee's General Mitchell International Airport. Tomorrow, Southwest will take over service with two daily departures to Chicago's Midway International Airport, connecting Iowa Customers to the airline's largest operation in the country, with additional connecting service to more than 75 destinations.

    "Our arrival in Des Moines represents one of the true benefits of our integration with AirTran Airways, allowing us to continue to bring low fares and legendary Customer Service to the People of Des Moines," said Southwest Airlines Executive Vice President, Ron Ricks. "We're thrilled to provide Iowa Customers access to our broad network of destinations; and just as importantly, giving better access to Iowa for our existing Customers across America. This growth is exciting for Southwest Airlines."
