Technically, Southwest, the king of point-to-point travel, does not have a hub. However, they have significant operations at Phoenix, Las Vegas, Baltimore, Nashville and Kansas City, among other places.

According to their website, Phoenix is their largest operation... here's the full list with the number of daily departures:

Phoenix, 178
Las Vegas, 154
Houston-Hobby, 148
Dallas-Love, 140
Los Angeles-LAX, 122
Chicago-Midway, 121
Oakland, 112
Baltimore, 106
St. Louis, 85
Nashville, 83

The city with the highest number of nonstop markets served is Las Vegas, with 37. Also, none of these cities are "new": the last one to make the list, Baltimore, was established in 1993. Most are from the early-to-mid 1980s.

I imaginge the number of flights at MDW will increase this year once the new terminal opens. I believe they are supposed to operate out of 20 gates when it is completed.
