Southwest Airlines will launch new nonstop flights this fall from Denver into America’s blues-music capital and the country’s largest border town.

Denver International Airport’s second-largest carrier will begin daily service on Oct. 3 between Denver International Airport and Memphis International Airport. Then, on Oct. 7, the Dallas-based carrier (NYSE: LUV) will offer weekly service on Sundays between DIA and El Paso International Airport in Texas.
