The Dallas Morning News reports that the Dallas-based carrier says its plans non-stop flights from Dallas Love Field to Corpus Christi International Airport. It’s a route that the airline hasn’t flown nonstop since 1986.
Flights will operate once per week on Saturdays, beginning on Aug. 10.
The new route was revealed this week as part of Southwest’s latest schedule extension, which included seven seasonal Saturday-only routes around the country that will operate beginning in August.
Among the recently announced routes are flights from Orlando, Fla., to Newark, N.J. and Richmond, Va.; flights from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., to Buffalo, N.Y. and Hartford, Conn.; and flights from Milwaukee, Wis., to Seattle.
