Spirit Magazine - March 2014 - (Page 136)

Spotlight + Our Plane, Your Adventure When college basketball teams take to the court to compete for a national championship this month, Southwest Airlines and AirTran Airways will be cheering from the sidelines and watching with a close eye. That's because while the teams are playing on the court, we're in the background helping them get from one game to the next. Behind the scenes, our Charter Department-along with many other Company workgroups-is hard at work, organizing, making arrangements, and executing flight plans to get these athletes to their games ontime. We're a one-stop shop for Customers who are looking to charter a flight, too. You have full control over the experience you and your group need and desire- how can you not LUV that? You 136 SPIRIT MARCH 2014 decide when you are traveling, where you are going, and the type of beverage, snack, and meal service provided on the flight. In fact, we can customize travel for your company, team, or group to most commercial airports in the continental U.S.! We're in the game to make it easier for you to get where you need to go-Safely, reliably, and with that legendary Customer Service that you've come to know and LUV. Between December 19, 2013, and January 7, 2014, the Southwest Charter Department pulled off a personal record-breaking feat: In less than three weeks, we flew more than 120 charter flights to and from college bowl games across the United States. Not only did we transport several football teams to their bowl games, but we also carried marching bands, university officials, alumni groups, and fans-including those rooting for the National Champion Florida State Seminoles. In a first for our Charter Group, we even started using the largest aircraft in our fleet-the 737-800, with a capacity of 175 Passengers-to accommodate the demand. Since we began offering charter flights in 1980, these operations have grown to nearly 1,000 flights annually, traversing roughly two million miles every year.
