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.
