Lots of new Southwest flights began taking off from California this week, along with the addition of two new international gateways for Southwest: Columbus, Ohio, and New Orleans, Louisiana.

Eleven new nonstop flights launched from California, most from San Jose and the San Francisco area, but some from Sacramento and San Diego, as well.

I love seeing more Southwest flights added; that just means more places we can fly free using points and the Southwest Companion Pass!
