Southwest Airlines to Add Non-stop Service from Baltimore to Washington DC

Southwest_Airlines_Boeing_737-7H4_N231WNSouthwest Airlines, the Dallas-based no-frills carrier, announced earlier this week that it is adding non-stop service from Baltimore to Washington DC starting October 1. This new route will serve BWI-Thurgood Marshall Airport and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. This addition continues the trend of rapid expansion for the airline, which has recently made several aggressive additions to its international service.

Southwest To Add Non-Stop Service From Baltimore to Washington DC

“BWI is one of our major hubs and we felt that our Baltimore customers were underserved when it came to flights to our Nation’s Capital,” said Southwest Airlines spokesman Brenda Miller.

Miller said that, although final details were still being worked out, the airline was anticipating the addition of up to twelve daily runs between the BWI and Reagan National. With a flight time of just under four minutes, this service would be among Southwest Airline’s shortest.

“I am extremely excited,” gushed Francis Liotti, a Federal employee who commutes to the District from Severna Park. “Traffic is hellacious, so I hate driving, and the train is a hassle. So this will be a game-changer for me!”

Southwest Airlines was established in 1967 as Air Southwest. The carrier initially served Dallas, Houston and San Antonio.

Oh Baby, I am a femme fatale. I am Wanda> married to Otto--oh wait, that's my doppelgänger....I get confused sometimes. Actually, I am the one in charge here at The Crabwrapper because I am currently sleeping with Mark. In that capacity, I come in late (if at all), go home early, take extended lunch breaks and no one dares to give me any shit about it.
