DALLAS, Nov. 1, 2012

DALLAS, Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Southwest Airlines (NYSE: LUV) now offers
for sale nonstop service from San Juan, Puerto Rico, to Orlando and Tampa Bay,
for travel beginning on Sunday, April 14, 2013. Beginning in April, Southwest
will operate three daily nonstop flights between Orlando and San Juan and one
daily nonstop flight between Tampa Bay and San Juan, as the carrier
transitions these routes from AirTran-operated city pairs. To celebrate the
new San Juan service, Southwest announced a fare sale of $99* one-way between
these markets. These fares must be booked by Nov. 7, 2012, for travel between
Monday, April 15, 2013, and Thursday, May 23, 2013 (Friday and Sunday travel
is excluded). See full fare rules below. To take advantage of these special
fares, travel must be booked at www.southwest.com.

AirTran will continue to offer service between San Juan and
Baltimore/Washington, Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood, and Atlanta. Southwest soon
will determine the best time to convert the remaining AirTran flying to
Southwest as part of the ongoing integration to eventually become one airline
flying under the Southwest brand. AirTran Customers who booked flights between
San Juan and Tampa Bay or San Juan and Orlando for travel beginning April 14,
2013, or later will be contacted by the airline and rebooked on Southwest
flights. As Southwest continues to integrate AirTran's People, places, and
planes into Southwest Airlines, Customers of both carriers may exchange earned
loyalty points between both AirTran's A+ Rewards® and Southwest's Rapid
Rewards® frequent flyer programs for reward travel on either airline.**

"Southwest celebrates San Juan, Puerto Rico, as our first venture beyond the
continental United States," said Southwest Airlines Executive Vice President &
Chief Commercial Officer and AirTran Airways President, Bob Jordan. "AirTran
has done a wonderful job establishing a presence in this market, and Southwest
is proud to continue that legacy and extend our vast network of destinations,
exceptional Customer Service, and convenient low fares to the San Juan
community."

"We are excited about Southwest's arrival into Puerto Rico to offer its
legendary Customer Service.It is an honor to be Southwest's first
destination outside the continental United States.The Puerto Rico Tourism
Company and all Puerto Rican travelers welcome this new carrier to our Island
and know that this new service will provide great opportunities for growth
into the airline's robust network, and great connectivity to the west coast
markets in the U.S.," said Luis G. Rivera Marin, Executive Director of the
Puerto Rico Tourism Company.

AirTran began service at San Juan in March 2008 with service to Orlando and
Atlanta. In February 2009, the carrier added service between San Juan and
Baltimore/Washington. AirTran added San Juan service to Tampa Bay in April
2011 and to Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood in May 2012. Today, AirTran still
offers a total of five daily nonstop flights to three markets from San Juan:
Atlanta, Baltimore/Washington, and Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood.
