This airport is an operating base for Southwest Airlines. It is Southwest’s fifth-busiest airport in its flight network. Currently, there are many destinations to choose from, and virtual pilots can enjoy flying from this airport. There are flights to Las Vegas, Atlanta, Albuquerque, New York LGA and so on.
