Southwest Airlines will buy AirTran. So?

We normally don't cover "travel industry" news here, but I'm a big fan of Southwest and get strangely excited when they start offering service to new cities. Who knows? I may need to fly direct to Louisville one day.

This week the airline announced it will buy AirTran, another popular low-cost carrier. The acquisition will open some key domestic cities, in particular Atlanta, to loyal Southwest customers. But what's most exciting is the promise of a few new international destinations, something Southwest hasn't ventured into before. AirTran has service to Cancun, Mexico; Montego Bay, Jamaica; Punta Cana, Dominican Republic; San Juan, Puerto Rico; and Aruba. Check out the rest of the new offerings on the route maps.

Maybe I won't need to go to Louisville after all. You can find me in Punta Cana instead.
