Southwest Airlines to launch service from Denver in 2006.
Southwest Airlines (NYSE: LUV) will launch service from Denver International Airport in early 2006.
The airline said that it plans to announce the specifics of its flight schedule and fares in a news conference in Denver next week. According to the airline's CEO Gary Kelly, Southwest has experienced strong demand to serve a gap in the route network.
Southwest Airlines has previously served the Denver market between 1983 and 1986 from Stapleton International Airport. The airline said that it has been able to accelerate the start-up of this planned new city due to aircraft availability created by Hurricane Katrina-related schedule changes and the resumption of new aircraft deliveries from Boeing subsequent to the cessation of a Boeing work stoppage.
