DALLAS (AP) -- Southwest Airlines Co. is going to Wichita, Kan., replacing the service currently operated by AirTran Airways.
Southwest -- starting June 2 -- will fly to Wichita from Chicago, Dallas and Las Vegas, a day after AirTran service on the route ends.
Dallas-based Southwest will also begin flights between Houston's Hobby Airport and New York's LaGuardia; Chicago's Midway Airport and Tulsa, Okla.; and between San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Baltimore-Washington International Airport.
The carrier announced the additions Monday.
AirTran, which Southwest expects to absorb in the next few years, will start flights between Tampa, Fla., and both Houston and Raleigh-Durham, N.C., on June 2.
