“Since landing in Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky as summer began, our local fans have been building our success story by filling our flights in search of low fares and Southwest’s world famous value and customer service,” said Adam Decaire, Southwest Airlines’ managing director of Network Planning. “This time-saving service brings Reds fans faster to Spring Training, and also gives our hometown fans in Phoenix, where we offer more flights than any other carrier, a quick trip to Cincinnati.”
“We’re excited Southwest is adding service to Phoenix as another option for Reds fans to go to Spring Training,” said Candace McGraw, chief executive officer, CVG. “Local passengers can also use this service to connect to more than 10 west coast destinations.”
This is the third destination served by Southwest, who began service from CVG in June of this year with five flights a day to Chicago – Midway (MDW), and three flights a day to Baltimore/Washington D.C. (BWI).
