Southwest offers flights to four new cities from BWI

Southwest Airlines is now operating flights from Baltimore to four new cities as it continues its integration of subsidiary AirTran Airways.

As of April 14, passengers can book flights on the airline from BWI-Marshall Airport to Charlotte, N.C.; Flint, Mich.; Portland, Maine; and Rochester, N.Y., all cities where AirTran has ended service.

In addition, Southwest is now offering flights beyond the contiguous 48 states for the first time in its history.

The airline now offers nonstop service between San Juan, Puerto Rico, and two Florida cities. Flights from Orlando and Tampa Bay to the Caribbean island began Sunday. Southwest also will begin flights from Fort Lauderdale to San Juan in September.

The airline said its subsidiary, AirTran, will continue to operate nonstop flights to San Juan from Baltimore.
