Southwest Airlines to start ATL-LAX

Southwest Airlines announced today plans to start operating Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson (ATL) to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) starting on June 10, 2012.  This flight will be in addition to the three daily flights operated by AirTran, Southwest’s wholly-owned subsidiary.

As the Southwest-AirTran merger proceeds, it’ll be interesting to watch how Delta reacts as the king of low cost carriers invades the home turf of Delta at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson Airport.

Southwest will begin service to the Atlanta market on February 12, 2012, with 15 daily non-stop flights including Baltimore-Washington (BWI), Chicago Midway (MDW), Denver (DEN), Houston-Hobby (HOU), and Austin, Texas (AUS).  A month later on March 10, 2012, Southwest will begin daily non-stops between Atlanta and Las Vegas (LAS) and Phoenix (PHX).

With the addition of Atlanta, Southwest will have a total of 73 destinations on their route map.

As more Atlanta AirTran routes are converted to Southwest, travel to and from Atlanta could get interesting should Southwest take Delta head-on.
