Southwest Opens Longest Booking Window Ever

Southwest is adding three new destinations from Denver, starting in June. The low-cost airline will add one daily nonstop each to Columbus, Jacksonville, and Pittsburgh.

By June, Southwest says it will operate 150 daily nonstops from Denver to 45 destinations. When the airline launched Denver service in 2006, it had 13 nonstops to three cities.

Southwest has also opened up fares for travel up to August 12, 2011, which, at 270 days, is the longest booking window it has ever offered. The airline says it is expecting a busy summer, and “for a change,” won’t be discontinuing any routes. Instead, the airline will add 54 daily flights to its network—not to mention AirTran’s flights, at some point.

Readers, where else would you like to see Southwest fly? Which current Southwest cities do you think are in need of expansion?
