Dallas-based Southwest Airlines counts days until Wright amendment repeal at Dallas Love Field
In 1980 the Wright Amendment restricted Southwest Airlines to nonstop flights from Dallas Love Field to airports in Texas and four bordering states: Oklahoma, Louisiana, New Mexico and Arkansas. In 2006 a compromise was finally reached between Southwest Airlines, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, American Airlines Inc., and the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth: the Wright Amendment would expire in eight years. Congress enacted the law which established October 13, 2014 as the date when the airline will be able to fly nonstop anywhere in the U.S.
Southwest Airlines is counting down the days with a countdown clock in the lobby of its headquarters next to Love Field.
