The new flights are made possible through a previously announced long-term sublease agreement giving Southwest the use of two gates from United Airlines in the newly rebuilt 20-gate facility, which is a collaborative effort between the City of Dallas and Southwest Airlines. Airfield construction continues with additional taxiway capacity scheduled to open in mid-March and mid-July and additional ramp space scheduled to open in late August and in November of this year. Southwest continues its fleet modernization efforts to replace Classic aircraft with more fuel-efficient and longer-range aircraft with winglets resulting in quieter aircraft operation for neighborhoods and communities served by the carrier.
