“We are thrilled to welcome Southwest Airlines to our community and look forward to the positive economic and cultural impact it will have,” said Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers. “Whenever I have discussed air service in Colorado Springs with our citizens, they inevitably ask about Southwest Airlines. I want to thank all of our partners, Visit COS, the Chamber & EDC, the Regional Air Service Task Force and the team at our airport for their collaboration and support in bringing Southwest Airlines to Colorado Springs."

The airline also announced Monday it would begin new flights to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; Eugene, Oregon; and Bellingham, Washington.
