Southwest Airlines Says Sayonara to Jackson

Southwest Airlines announced they are pulling out of Jackson, Mississippi.  From Southwest's press release:

“Southwest Airlines announced today its decision to close three cities in the airline’s network. On June 7, 2014, Southwest will cease operations at Branson Airport (BKG), Key West International Airport (EYW), and Jackson-Evers International Airport (JAN). Southwest began service to Jackson-Evers International in 1997. The airline added Branson Airport and Key West International Airport to its route map in 2012 as part of its integration with AirTran, a wholly-owned subsidiary.”
