Southwest Airlines announced this week that they would be expanding their service from Washington D.C. (Reagan National) with new nonstop service to Orlando, Florida.
Per Southwest: Southwest Airlines announced new nonstop service from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) to Orlando, Florida beginning on Nov. 1. Orlando will be Southwest’s third Florida destination from DCA, where it is the second largest carrier as measured by passengers carried. Southwest will now offer flights to 17 nonstop destinations from this convenient downtown airport.
Southwest Airlines operates more than 260 daily nonstop flights from its three Washington, D.C. area airports. Since July of last year, the airline has added seven new international destinations from Baltimore/Washington Thurgood Marshall International airport, and new nonstop service from Washington, D.C. (Reagan National) to Chicago (Midway), Columbus, Dallas Love Field, Indianapolis, Nashville, New Orleans, Tampa Bay, Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood beginning on August 9, and Orlando starting in November 2015. In addition, the carrier’s long-haul offerings from Washington Dulles have grown in the past year to add both Las Vegas, and San Diego as nonstop routes.
Fares for the new flights between Washington, D.C. (Reagan National) and Orlando start as low as $59 one-way.
It’s great to see Southwest expanding their service out of the Washington D.C. service and this new service to Orlando is a great addition.
For those interested, you can book these $59 fares through May 24, 2015 for travel between Nov. 1 through Dec. 16, 2015.
