Southwest to Offer Daily, Direct Flights From LR to Orlando in Spring

Southwest Airlines will offer direct flights from Little Rock to Orlando beginning Feb. 15 and running through April 13, Clinton National Airport officials announced Tuesday.

The seasonal offering will entail daily, non-stop service between the cities and hopes to capitalize on vacationing families during the spring break season.

"We're extremely grateful that Southwest will be adding this new opportunity for our passengers," said T.J. Williams, director of Air Service Development at Clinton National, in a news release. "We hope demand for direct service to this popular family destination will lead to the schedule being extended."

Clinton National is putting the finishing touches on a $67 million construction project to modernize and expand its terminal.
