Southwest Airlines, a renowned American airline based out of Dallas, Texas, reportedly announced the addition of 10 new routes in its summer schedule deployment across a number of its busiest airbases.

The low-cost airline announced three new day-to-day routes starting from Baltimore/Washington (BWI) as well as other two starting from Atlanta (ATL) since the airline expanded its booking schedule till August 10. The airline would also add new routes particularly for weekends from Houston Hobby (HOU) and Nashville (BNA).

The company has also scheduled a nonstop flight from Kansas City in Missouri to Charleston, South Carolina only on Saturday. All the newly revealed routes would be seasonal.

The airline company’s novel service from Atlanta would be to Panama City, Florida; Charleston, South Carolina and Norfolk, Virginia. Southwest would compete directly with its ling-time rival, Delta Air Lines over all the three routes.

From BWI, the company would add new flights to Pensacola in Florida, as well as Tulsa in Oklahoma. The airline would provide daily service through all five of the routes initiating June 7.
