Southwest Airlines Expanding Schedule

DALLAS (AP) - Southwest Airlines is expanding its schedule again.
Dallas-based Southwest today announced it will be adding 33 nonstop flights involving 26 cities. The list includes new nonstop service between:

-- Baltimore-Washington and Pittsburgh
-- Cleveland and Orlando, Florida
-- Dallas Love Field and Birmingham, Alabama
-- and between Reno/Lake Tahoe and San Diego.

Some of the new flights begin March eleventh, while the rest take effect by April 15th. Southwest for years fought the restrictive Wright Amendment. President Bush last month signed into law a measure lifting some of those long-haul flight rules at Love Field.

The law allows immediate one-stop flights and, by 2014, unrestricted nonstops.
