“Southwest proved the market by testing it during the holiday travel season. It was tremendously popular. We weren’t surprised, but we were delighted with the response, given the impact of the pandemic on travel demand. Fort Myers is one of our top destinations, so we are thrilled that Southwest will offer this convenient and affordable service this Spring,” said Dan Mann, Executive Director of the Louisville Regional Airport Authority. “Southwest’s growth at SDF speaks to the trajectory we’re on as a market and an airport. We hope this is the first of many new flight announcements this year.”
