DALLAS (AP) – Southwest Airlines said Monday that it will add new service and take over some routes from its AirTran Airways subsidiary beginning in November.

Dallas-baesd Southwest will start daily nonstop flights between Houston and Indianapolis; Houston and Orange County, Calif.; Dallas and Harlingen, Texas; Denver and Louisville; and Kansas City and New Orleans.
Several routes currently flown by AirTran will switch to Southwest on Nov. 4 including Key West, Fla. to Orlando and Tampa, Fla.; and Milwaukee to San Francisco, Boston and Fort Lauderdale, Fla. AirTran also added winter flights on some routes.
Southwest plans to eventually discontinue the AirTran brand.
