3rd Annual Business Travel Intelligence Summit
SOUTHWEST AIRLINES may not be well known to the travelling public of Europe but it is very much the ”big daddy” of the budget carriers. Last week it celebrated its 33rd year of operation and took delivery of Boeing 737 number 400, one of nine 737-700s Southwest will receive this month, part of a total 47 slated for the airline this year. Highly profitable Dallas-based Southwest is the fourth-largest US carrier in terms of customers boarded. Last year the airline flew more than 65m passengers to 59 cities across the US.
