Florida’s Basking in its Award

The airport, which will be located about a 20-minute drive from Northwest Florida’s beaches, is being developed in conjunction with a massive nature preserve that will feature Florida’s largest span of underdeveloped coastline.

“Southwest Airlines customers are now free to hit Florida’s white-sand beaches with Southwest Airlines’ great, low-fare service from across the nation’s largest airline network,” says Rogers. “Southwest’s arrival in Northwest Florida is expected to stimulate economic development and give travelers more of the options they’ve been seeking.”
