Wheels up! Southwest Airlines began flying a number of new routes Sunday, Nov. 4, and returned an additional roster of seasonal routes to its fall and winter schedule.

The expansion includes a number of additions for LaGuardia, Washington, DC’s Reagan National as well as for San Jose. The East Coast additions come courtesy of Virgin America’s demise (RIP): Southwest was able to secure slots at LaGuardia (LGA) and Washington Reagan National (DCA) from Alaska Airlines, which is downsizing its presence in the two northeast airports.

Southwest now also flies nonstop between LGA and New Orleans (MSY), and has added two weekend-only routes to Florida that will launch this upcoming weekend. Washington, DC’s Reagan National (DCA) will also enjoy nonstop service to Oklahoma City.

On the West Coast, Southwest has increased its traffic through the San Jose and Burbank airports, adding both new routes and expanding existing availability.

The only nonstop route that was cut from the line-up was Portland – Orange County, CA, which ended Saturday, Nov. 3. A connecting route is still available.
