Southwest Airlines will add two destinations next spring to its schedule of flights from Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, the carrier announced Monday.

On April 14, AirTran Airways, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Southwest, will begin daily service to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, pending government approval. Southwest will offer three daily nonstop flights to Flint, Mich., from BWI.

In addition, three AirTran destinations will convert to Southwest, beginning the same day: Charlotte, N.C.; Rochester, N.Y.; and Portland, Maine. The carrier is offering introductory one-way fares on the new routes of between $69 and $159; travel must be booked by Oct. 28 and be taken between April 14 and May 22.
