Where Southwest trimmed to add new post-Wright flights

Southwest Airlines is growing at Dallas Love Field from 118 daily flights to 149 flights after the Wright Amendment restrictions are lifted in October.

But to add a number of long-haul daily frequencies to its Love Field operations, Southwest did some trimming to its existing short-haul markets out of the Dallas airport.

Here's where the cuts were made:

  • Albuquerque from 8 daily flights to 5
  • Austin from 12 daily flights to 10
  • El Paso from 6 daily flights to 4
  • Houston from 23 daily flights to 21
  • Little Rock from 4 daily flights to 3
  • Kansas City from 9 daily flights to 7
  • San Antonio from 13 daily flights to 10
  • St. Louis from 9 daily flights to 7
  • Tulsa from 4 daily flights to 3

Industry analysts had predicted that Southwest would cut some of its service on the shorter routes after the Wright Amendment restrictions are lifted on October 13. 

With almost 150 daily flights, Southwest will be operating about 10 flights per gate per day from Love Field.
