Southwest to launch Milwaukee service in November


Southwest Airlines will start flying to Milwaukee on Nov. 1, the carrier announced today.

The Dallas-based airline said it would begin service with 12 daily nonstop flights: three each to Baltimore/Washington and Kansas City, two each to Las Vegas and Orlando and one each to Phoenix and Tampa Bay.

Tickets on those routes purchased by Friday will be priced as low as $35, which the company said was in honor of Wisconsin becoming the 35th state the carrier will serve.
