In its 44th year of service, Dallas-based Southwest Airlines has approximately 45,000 employees serving more than 100 million Customers annually.

Based on the most recent data available from the U.S. Department of Transportation, Southwest is the nation’s largest carrier in terms of originating domestic passengers boarded.

The airline also operates the largest fleet of Boeing aircraft in the world to serve 93 destinations in 40 states, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and five near-international countries via wholly owned subsidiary, AirTran Airways.

Southwest acquired AirTran Airways in May 2011 and by the end of 2014 intends to complete the full integration of the AirTran network into Southwest. With 41 consecutive years of profitability, the People of Southwest and AirTran operate more than 3,600 flights a day.

Southwest seeks to enhance Shareholder value through capital efficiency and our targeted 15 percent pre-tax return on invested capital (excluding special items).

In 2013, Southwest returned $611 million to Shareholders through repurchasing $540 million of common stock (approximately 38 million shares) and distributing $71 million in dividends.

LUV is Southwest’s stock exchange symbol, selected to represent its home at Dallas Love Field, as well as the theme of Southwest’s Stakeholder relationships.
