Southwest Airlines wins BWI business award

The BWI Business Partnership Inc. has awarded its annual Spirit of Success Award to Southwest Airlines as the BWI Business District Business of the Year.

In accepting the award on behalf of Southwest, Herbert D. Kelleher, the airline's chairman, chief executive officer and president, linked the expansion of his company and that of Baltimore-Washington International Airport, noting that in less than five years, Southwest has more than quadrupled its BWI flights to 53 a day, while BWI has handled a record volume of passengers.
