    SWA introduces Florida One!

    Gary Kelly will be flying to an announced city tomorrow morning to make a special announcement.

    This is not a release of a new city or expansion, more internal announcement.

    Anyone wanna garner a guess?

    Yes, I know what it is, and I am frankly quite excited about it! Can't wait to see what your guesses could be!

    Well WN released some more information so the city will be in TPA. More to come!

    http://www.bizjournals.com/tampabay/blo ... prise.html

    This is a VERY big hint...

    When Southwest does touch down with the news you will be the first to hear. Just check in online at tampabay.bizjournals.com.

    About time, they've been flying to Florida for over 10 years now.

    As confirmed, it is indeed Florida One.

    Mark-It will be hitting FLL/PBI later on during the day, if you want a photo opp?

    The entire routing will be

    CWF-TPA-JAX-PBI-FLL-MCO-RSW-DAL

    They used Flight 8500 for the ferry flight however this seems to be the one being used for TPA-JAX now.

    Re: SWA introduces Florida One!

    Anyone notice anything regarding registration?

    It seems WN is coinciding when the state joined the union by the registration.

    Illinois One is N918WN, Illinois became a state in 1818
    Florida One is N945WN, Florida became a state in 1845.

    Coincidence or clever planning by the WN folks? ;)

    Not to worry - I'll be out there - just told my boss I'm taking a late lunch to get the arrival and maybe the departure too.
