Southwest to Drop 3 Cities from Network
Southwest Airlines announced it will cease operations in three cities in its network on June 7 of next year. The airline will no longer operate out of Branson Airport in Missouri, Key West International Airport in Florida, and Jackson-Evers International Airport in Mississippi.
Southwest cited a decrease in level of local demand as the reason for shutting down operations in the three cities.
The carrier will continue to operate its normal schedule out of each city through June 6, 2014.
Southwest added Branson Airport and Key West International Airport to its network last year when it integrated with AirTran.
