Reaching the Beach is Easier

Thanks to Southwest Airlines' recent consolidation of flight schedules with AirTran Airways, reaching the beach - and dozens of other great destinations - just got easier. Customers can now purchase tickets on a growing number of routes between the Southwest and AirTran networks on a single itinerary. And soon, travelers will be able to book flights to any of the airlines' combined 97 U.S and international destinations in just one transaction.


Each month, Southwest Airlines and AirTran Airways are adding shared itineraries to a number of destinations and expect to connect fully to both networks in April - just in time for Spring Break and summer travel.


Through Southwest, local travelers will be able to connect from Louisville through Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Jacksonville and West Palm Beach. In addition, Southwest currently offers convenient, nonstop flights to Orlando and Tampa.


To find more low fares and flight schedules on Southwest Airlines go to And remember Southwest only sells tickets on its website.

Louisville International Lowers Airline Fees


The Louisville Regional Airport Authority Board recently lowered various fees for signatory airlines at Louisville International Airport.


Included in the reductions is a 4.9% decrease (from $1.422 to $1.352 per 1,000 lbs. of maximum gross landed weight) in landing fees with the savings passed directly to the airport's airline partners.


Skip Miller, Executive Director of the Authority, noted, "The airline industry continues to make adjustments in an era of unpredictable fuel prices and fluctuating demand for passenger and cargo services. This reduction in landing fees and other rental charges at Louisville International helps reduce the airlines' operating costs and demonstrates our continuing commitment to retain and enhance passenger and cargo air services to our community."
