Southwest to add seasonal flights to Panama City and Charleston

Southwest Airlines plans to begin flying seasonally from Atlanta to Charleston, S.C. and Panama City, Fla. next year.

The new daily seasonal flights will start June 7, 2020.

Southwest will also resume service from Atlanta to Norfolk, Va. with daily seasonal service starting on June 7. The airline previously flew Atlanta-Norfolk before discontinuing the route in 2014.

Dallas-based Southwest is the second-largest airline at Hartsfield-Jackson International, behind Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines. Southwest’s new flights will add competition on those routes from Atlanta.

With the new flights, Southwest said it will have 135 weekday departures from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport over the summer, which is the most it has ever offered from Atlanta.
