Southwest Airlines Integrates AirTran In Cargo Service

Dallas-based low-cost carrier Southwest Airlines (NYSE: LUV) said it has begun shipping cargo on its AirTran Airways subsidiary under the Southwest Airlines Cargo brand.

The airlines completed connectivity of the two networks earlier this year, opening up more destination options and reaching more potential customers.

In addition to broadening the overall cargo network across the two airlines, Southwest introduced four new cargo destinations to their route map:

  • Charlotte, N.C. (CLT)
  • Rochester, N.Y. (ROC)
  • Richmond, Va. (RIC)
  • Beginning May 1, Southwest Airlines Cargo will serve San Juan, Puerto Rico(SJU).

Connectivity of the carriers' networks means hundreds of new flights and 68 new nonstop markets for cargo customers. Currently, Southwest Airlines Cargo can connect through Southwest-to-AirTran flights, and through AirTran-only or AirTran-to-AirTran flights. Find out more at
