DALLAS, May 22 /PRNewswire/ -- The Honor Flight Network proudly announces Southwest Airlines (NYSE: LUV) as its Official Commercial Airline. Honor Flight serves the nation's Veterans by taking them to Washington D.C. to visit the World War II Memorial, free of charge. Partnering with Southwest Airlines will allow Honor Flight to accomplish its goals more expeditiously because of the airline's generous, multi-year commitment of complimentary tickets.

"Southwest Airlines Employees are passionate about the Honor Flight mission," said Linda Rutherford, Vice President of Communications and Strategic Outreach. "Southwest was founded on the value of Freedom, and we are honored to give back to these Veterans who gave so much to preserve the Freedoms we have today."

Honor Flight's priority is to transport the Veterans of any conflict with a terminal illness who would like to visit their individual memorial and the most senior Veterans, the survivors of WWII.

Southwest Airlines has a long history of supporting the men and women who fight for the nation's Freedoms. The airline is proud to have more than 700 Employees serve in the National Guard and Reserves. In fact, Southwest Airlines was recognized by the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) for its commitment and support of the airline's National Guard and Reserve Employees. In 2007, Southwest Airlines was named one of the Top 50 Military Friendly Employers. Based in Dallas, Southwest Airlines currently serves 65 cities in 33 states, with service to New York LaGuardia, and Boston Logan starting this summer, and Milwaukee later in the year.
