Following Southwest Airlines’ recent announcement to start flights into Miami International Airport for the first time, the carrier has published its schedule.

Southwest Airlines, the nation’s largest domestic air carrier in 2019, announced on Thursday that it will operate daily flights from MIA to Baltimore, Chicago Midway Airport, Houston Hobby Airport and Tampa.

The airline will have 12 daily round-trip flights at MIA, which the company says will make it the “one of the busiest passenger airline currently operating at MIA.”

Lester Sola, MIA Director and CEO said, “We are deeply honored to see the substantial commitment of flights that Southwest Airlines is making to Miami-Dade County and to MIA. In addition to increased flight options for our passengers, Southwest’s expansion is expected to generate a sizable amount of business revenue and job creation within our community.”

Southwest Airlines was recognized as: Best Airline in North America; Best Airline in the U.S.; Best Economy in North America; and Best Low-Cost Airline in North America.
