Southwest starts flying from Dulles

4 October 2006

When Southwest Airlines launches its inaugural routes from Washington Dulles International on Thursday, its operations at nearby Baltimore-Washington International (BWI) could be harmed, the Baltimore Sun reports.

As the leading low-cost carrier, Southwest has a history of expanding into new markets to broaden its customer base as it follows its vastly successful and long-standing business plan of offering choice and cheap fares.

However, its latest move in starting service from a second airport nearby – just 60 miles from Baltimore – could impinge on its own local business and has led to some criticism.

Southwest has refuted these suggestions, however, pointing to its success in integrating four airports in and around the Los Angeles and southern California area.
