Southwest Adds International Flights

Southwest Airlines, the largest domestic carrier in the US, has now set its sights on international travel.  Since the airline’s purchase of AirTran last year, they are set to take over AirTran’s flights to the Caribbean and Mexico.  The airline is also in the process of getting a new reservation system put into place to handle overseas flights and wants to build a new terminal at Houston’s Hobby Airport, from which it says it could operate up to 25 international flights daily.


Southwest’s success was build on offering low-fare domestic service in the US, so the shift to international travel is a big one.  More and more Southwest is competing on the same level as the legacy carriers in the US, including Delta, United, and American.  Basili Alukos, an airline analyst at Morningstar, says it seems as if Southwest is becoming a legacy carrier, as well, and he says that if they can replicate their domestic success, then they will have a great opportunity for international travel.
