Today, we sing Happy Birthday to Greenville-Spartanburg
as March 13 marks one year since we welcomed the first set of Customers onboard
traveling from GSP. To thank the Upstate
community for choosing the LUV airline as their hometown carrier, we are
inviting folks traveling through GSP to join us for a day-long anniversary
party in the Southwest gate areas.
Customers will have the opportunity to enjoy food, FUN, games, music,
and the chance to win roundtrip tickets anywhere our canyon blues fly.
As I look back on one year, I can certainly tell you that
Customers are ecstatic that Southwest Airlines finally brought its big planes,
little fares, and excellent Customer Service to the Upstate. Over the past year, numerous Customers have
told us that they are so happy they no longer have to drive to Charlotte (or
even farther) to catch not only an affordable and comfortable flight, but to
experience some of that good ol’ Southwest hospitality.
The past year has flown by, but the Employees remain
excited to be a part of something as special as opening a new Station in such a
great city. GSP may be a small Station,
but we have no shortage of camaraderie, Team Spirit, and the desire to give
back to the community.

Hosting the Community at the 2011 Spartanburg International Festival
Leading our Southwest Warriors for the first year has
been an amazing experience! I could not
have asked for a more hard-working, dedicated, and Fun-LUVing Team of people to
bring Southwest Airlines to the Upstate.
Serving Meals and Smiles at the Ronald McDonald House
From serving Customers here every day with a smile to
rolling up our sleeves and volunteering in the community, all of this hard work
over the past year is paying off. In
fact, GSP was recently recognized as one of the top performing Stations in the
Southwest system for 2011
Cleaning Up the Community with Hands on Greenville
If you haven’t visited Greenville-Spartanburg, add it to
your list. I like to call this area a
hidden gem—it truly has it all. We have
great weather practically year-round for outdoor activities. We have the mountains nearby, and the beach
is just a short drive away. Not only
that, but we have a thriving restaurant scene, cultural scene, and nightlife as
well. We here at GSP feel so very
grateful to be able to live in such a special place! Check out what to do in Greenville
and I promise you won’t be disappointed!
And, be sure to stop by and say hello if you’re in the city I’ve easily
grown to call home in the past year.
Charleston also turns one today, and Customers will enjoy
a full day of celebrating the special occasion tomorrow. So stay tuned for more South Carolina LUV!
