Airline Biography

Southwest Airlines (Real World) Information;

Southwest Airlines Co. is a major U.S. airline headquartered in Dallas, Texas, and North America’s largest low-cost carrier.

The airline was established in 1967 by Herb Kelleher as Air Southwest Co. and then adopted its current name, Southwest Airlines Co., in 1971 when it began operating as an intrastate airline wholly within the state of Texas. The airline has more than 57,000 employees as of March 2018 and operates more than 4,000 departures a day during peak travel season. As of 2014, it carried the most domestic passengers of any U.S. airline. As of May 2018, Southwest Airlines has scheduled services to 100 destinations in the United States and ten additional countries, with services to Turks & Caicos having begun on November 5, 2017. Service to four destinations in Hawaii is coming in late 2018 or early 2019 subject to FAA approval, with routes to be decided on and announced in the near future.

Southwest Airlines has only operated Boeing 737 jetliner models, except for a period from 1979 to 1987 when it leased and operated several Boeing 727-200s from Braniff International Airways. Since January 2016, Southwest has been the largest operator of the Boeing 737 worldwide, with over 700 in service and each aircraft averaging six flights per day.
