On January 23rd, 2012 Southwest Airlines made it official announcing they would continue service to Branson’s airport once the takeover of AirTrans is complete.

Branson (BKG) was named as one of the 22 cities that will remain in the Southwest itinerary removing months of concern of whether they would or would not

Let me be one of the first ones to welcome Southwest Airlines to Branson. As a business owner and a frequent flyer of Southwest Airlines I cannot tell you how pleased I am to see them coming to our city.
