Southwest Airways has landed on the Palm Springs Worldwide Airport
“This is a well-known moment in our city and in our airport and in our community,” Palm Springs Pro Mayor Tem Christy Holstege told News Channel 3.
Southwest Airlines has landed at The Palm Springs International Airport. The ribbon cutting ceremony welcomed the planes Sunday morning.
“People have been working to get to the southwest here for ten years,” Holstege said.
Now, people can fly to Southwest Airlines to and from Phoenix, Oakland and Denver.
“Palm Springs is always on our list of places we want to go,” Vice President of Network Planning for Southwest Airlines, Adam Decaire told News Channel 3 at a rib cutting ceremony.
We asked Decaire if she wanted to add more aircraft in the future.
“We are taking care of our needs and how many people have decided to save us and the needs of our customers and we will be responsible for doing so if people choose to get off the plane then we will add more services,” Decaire said.
Al Jones, chairman of the Palm Springs International Airport Commission, said the increase would be an economic boom.
“It will significantly increase the economic power of Coachella Valley and the City of Palm Springs,” Jones said.
Unlike other airlines at the airport, Southwest Airlines will be operational year-round. It will not be seasonal.
According to a recent travel guide showing that people are self-reliant for 14 days after traveling to California from other countries or inter-city trips, Holstege outlined the importance of a successful epidemic.
“The city is working tirelessly to keep people safe during the epidemic so we need masks at the airport, town and our businesses, so we are working hard to keep the residents, businesses and workers safe,” he said.
Southwest Airlines tells us that their flights are leaving the empty central seat until November 30.
Palm Springs International Airport also offers two return tickets to the airport. It’s part of their new “Choose Your Entertainment” promotion which takes place on November 20.
