Southwest announced it will launch flights to South Carolina starting this spring. The low-cost carrier will begin service to Charleston and Greenville-Spartanburg on March 13.
In Charleston, Southwest will operate seven daily nonstops to four destinations: Baltimore (three daily flights), Chicago Midway (two daily flights), and Nashville and Houston (one daily flight each).
Greenville-Spartanburg will get seven daily nonstop flights to five destinations: Baltimore (two daily flights), Chicago Midway (two daily flights), and Nashville, Houston, and Orlando (one daily flight each).
The airline will offer connections to 60 destinations.
AirTran, which Southwest is in the process of acquiring, does not serve South Carolina. Greenville-Spartanburg will be the carrier's 70th city, and Charleston will be its 71st.
