SOUTHWEST SIGNS FOR ANOTHER BOEING 737-300

 SEATTLE, Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Southwest Airlines, one of the few profitable carriers in the United States over the past two years, will add another 737 to its fleet in September next year for a total of 16 deliveries from Boeing in 1994.
 Last month, Southwest announced it had ordered two more 737-300s from Boeing Commercial Airplane Group. The additional jetliner announced today means the Dallas-based airline will receive a new 737 on average every three weeks of the 1994 manufacturing calendar.
 The new 737-300s, powered by CFM56-3B engines, will add much-needed capacity to Southwest's all-737 fleet. The thrifty 737s provide far more efficient means of moving people than do automobiles or trains. Even with only 70 percent of seats occupied, a 737-300 achieves about 4.4 liters/100 km (26 Km/liter) per passenger on a 1,000-kilometer trip.
 At the end of September, Southwest's fleet included 156 Boeing 737s.
