Southwest launches flights to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport

Cutting the ribbon for the new route between the capital of Texas and the US federal capital were Michael McCaul, US Representative for Texas; Kay Bailey Hutchison, US Senator for Texas; and Southwest Airlines’ board member William Cunningham.

  • Southwest Airlines began serving the US capital’s downtown airport, Washington National, DC (DCA), on 8 July. The low-cost airline’s subsidiary AirTran is, however, already present at the airport. Southwest now operates daily from Austin, TX (AUS) with its 737-700s, after having been given approval by the US DOT. The airline already serves the Washington area from Austin with 20 flights a week to Baltimore/Washington, and United indirectly competes at Washington Dulles with its twice-daily operations to the Texan capital.
