  • Southwest Airlines will begin selling tickets for daily flights from Tampa International Airport to New York City's La Guardia International Airport

The carrier has also renewed its seasonal service to both Kansas City International Airport (MCI) and Dallas Love Field (DAL) with an increase in frequency: daily non-stop to Kansas City; and twice Saturday and once Sunday flights to Dallas.

"We are thrilled to bring another exciting tropical destination to Boston, just in time for winter", Mark Kopczak, Spirit Airlines' vice president of Network Planning, said in the release.

The daily flights to Denver are "based on our wildly successful weekend service we offered last summer", said Southwest spokesman Brad Hawkins.

Southwest Airlines joins Alaska Airlines as the two carriers providing nonstop service between Boise and San Diego. Daily flights out of Cincinnati will travel to Chicago Midway International Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Airport.

Later that same year, Southwest announced the first of many route cancellations from CAK, including flights to New York City, Orlando and Las Vegas.

Thursday's announcement bolsters flights from Indianapolis to the West Coast. That flight will also begin June 4.
