Why Is Southwest Hiring At IAD?

Sun Jun 18, 2006 1:11 pm

I was just surfing WN's site, looking at career opportunities. I noticed that they are accepting resumes for ground ops positions at IAD. Do they do ground handling for TZ anywhere, b/c the last time I looked WN served DC via BWI.
Is this a hint at a new city for them?
I guess it is, seeing as how I saw that they've requested gates at IAD.

Yep. New service to IAD has already been announced (or an intention to serve, anyway).

I heard WN was planning to lease a few gates to start up IAD in the fall.

I don't think WN has made an official announcement other than the announcement requesting gates at IAD.

A few eventually turns to many.  Smile

I believe service at IAD starts October 5th. Hopefully we will see initial routes and fares announced soon!

IAD service is a guaranteed thing at this point. When I went to my group interview 1 month ago the recruites said that IAD was going to open for sure this fall!!!
