I was fortunate enough to be on Southwest Airlines' MSP inaugural flight on March 8, and I also attended a ceremony Southwest hosted the next day at MSP's Humphrey Terminal.

Here is a link to my trip / ceremony report, which is at Airways Magazine's website:

Please leave comments here, on Airliners.net.

Enjoy!

Great story. I love Airways. Keep up the good work! Quick question, the Humphrey terminal at MSP is where they keep Suncountry right?

Correct.

The Humphrey Terminal is also used by Midwest, AirTran, and Icelandair, as well as all charter airlines.

Eventually, US, CO, AA, and UA will be moving to the Humphrey Terminal, and the main (Lindbergh) terminal will be just for DL / NW and their SkyTeam partners.

Thanks for the excellent report. This morning the Minneapolis Tribute is reporting that “Just 3 1/2 weeks after starting up flights to Chicago's Midway Airport, the Dallas-based carrier will announce today that it will offer three daily nonstop round-trip flights from the Humphrey terminal to Denver starting May 26.”

All those airlines in one terminal, from what I remember seeing from maps.live.com, the the Humphrey terminal is really not that big. Are they expanding it?

Yeah it's in the 2020 Vision plan for the airport. The exact amount of gates escapes me right now, but I believe when it's all said and done the HHH terminal will have gates somewhere in the high teens. 16-20??



Live to Fly.
