Big changes for Southwest Airlines

Starting July 1, Southwest Airlines will become an international carrier. It will now offer flights to Jamaica and Aruba from Atlanta, Baltimore, and Orlando. Over the coming months, more gates will follow.

While not long-haul flights, these represent a big change in the company’s history. It’s been a domestic-only carrier for 43 years, and this is made possible by Southwest’s taking over of the operations for its subsidiary, AirTran. These flights are just the first step, though, because eventually more routes will be added to Canada, Central America, the Caribbean, and some parts of South America.

It is unknown at this time how Southwest’s presence on these flights will impact ticket prices.
