Southwest Airlines held a party in grand “Southwest” style Monday morning to celebrate its inaugural flight into Pensacola International Airport.
When the first flight from Nashville landed, the plane was given a water cannon salute by the airport’s fire department on the tarmac. The festivities continued at the gate when passengers were greeted with music, balloons and very happy community members. The arrival of Southwest Airlines to PNS is expected to have a ripple effect throughout not only Pensacola, but also the surrounding communities.
