Southwest to Take Over De Moines Flights from AirTran

On September 30 Southwest Airlines will begin flying from Des Moines to Chicago, taking over the route from AirTran.  The budget airline will be offering two flights daily to Chicago’s Midway Airport.  Christi McNeill, a spokesperson for Southwest, said the airline will be using its own spacious aircraft and will have its friendly, smiling staff onboard.  She added that with Southwest’s planes there will be 40 more seats per flight.

Southwest merged with AirTran last May and in January they announced the planned conversion of the Des Moines route, which they said would happen within the next two years.  Don Smithey, Des Moines airport’s executive director, said that this move is a game-changer because it’s good for the passengers and the airport.  The new competition caused prices to drop by 40% and increased passenger traffic by as much as 100% in some markets.
