At William P. Hobby Airport, Southwest Airlines continues to absorb routes from its acquisitioned carrier AirTran Airways, as the two airlines fully integrate their operational schedules.

Southwest Airlines recently announced new nonstop flights from Hobby Airport to Pensacola, Florida and Memphis, Tennessee.

The new routes complete a plan to bring Southwest Airlines service to all domestic cities in the company's network by year's end, as the integration of Southwest and AirTran approaches its final phases.

"It is exciting for us to offer Southwest service in these markets," said Southwest Airlines Chairman, President, & CEO Gary Kelly. "We plan to further the extraordinary service that AirTran has offered these cities with our traditional low-cost, Fun-loving Southwest style."
