BRANSON, Mo. (AP) — Travelers will be able to fly Southwest Airlines out of Branson beginning this Saturday.
Southwest plans to offer one daily flight each to Chicago, Dallas and Houston, with a flight every Saturday to Orlando. Airport officials say Southwest will add a second daily flight to Chicago beginning June 1.
The flights begin a year after Southwest bought AirTran Airways, which had been serving the airport.
