Southwest Airlines announces markets to be served from Greenville-Spartanburg, South Carolina

Southwest Airlines today announced the destinations it will serve from Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP/KGSP) starting on March 13, 2011.

The carrier will feature seven daily non-stop flights to five destinations. There will be two flights to Baltimore-Washington, two to Chicago Midway and one each to Nashville, Houston Hobby and Orlando.

Southwest Airlines is offering a special deal as part of entering the Greenville-Spartanburg International airport market. The carrier is offering a special two-day fare sale only through 11:59 p.m. PDT on Thursday.

Customers can find fares as low as $30 one-way to any non-stop market to/from GSP and Charleston for travel through April 6, 2011.

In addition to the seven daily non-stop flights to/from these cities, Southwest Airlines' new service will offer direct or connecting service to more than 60 destinations including: Las Vegas, Denver, Dallas Love, Sacramento, and Salt Lake City.

Officials say 35 to 40 jobs will be created to serve at GSP International. We're told hiring will be done internally at first, but the company may go outside to fill all those positions. We're told a possible job fair could be held early next year. Officials also say they'll post the jobs, if available, on their Web site in January.
