Southwest Airlines continues Denver expansion with the opening of a new flight crew bases and line maintenance at Denver International Airport

Southwest Airlines (Dallas) yesterday (October 1) officially opened the carrier’s newest Pilot and Flight Attendant crew bases at Denver International Airport.  The new crew domiciles, which will be the airline’s ninth, will be home to nearly 400 Pilots and 400 Flight Attendants, with potential to grow as needed.  The lounges will be located on the third level of concourse C at Denver International Airport (DIA).  Southwest Airlines is also started line maintenance in Denver yesterday, which will be the first time the carrier has had this function at its operation at DEN.

The crew bases will serve as offices on the ground for Southwest’s Pilots and Flight Attendants.  Flight Crews stationed in Denver may use these offices before and after trips to receive briefings, access required reading material, learn about changes in policies or schedules, and catch up on Southwest news.

Southwest currently operates eight Pilot and Flight Attendants bases nationwide.  Additional Southwest crew domiciles are located in Baltimore/Washington, Chicago Midway, Dallas Love Field, Houston Hobby, Phoenix, Oakland, Orlando, and Las Vegas.

In addition to the crew bases, Southwest has also established a line maintenance operation at DIA.  Southwest will now have six local Maintenance Employees perform routine maintenance as needed for flights flying to/from DIA to streamline the carrier’s growing operation in the Mile High City.

Southwest Airlines began service to Denver on January 3, 2006, with 13 daily nonstop departures to three destinations.  The airline currently operates 166 daily nonstop flights to 54 destinations from Denver.  Southwest recently demonstrated its LUV for the state of Colorado by dedicating Colorado One (above), which is a specialty aircraft painted with the colors of the Colorado state flag.  Southwest also is actively engaged in the community through sponsorships of the Downtown Denver Partnership, the Denver Nuggets, Red Rocks Amphitheater, Denver’s Road Home, the Mile High Pedicab Company, and many more local organizations.
