Law to Lift Limits on Dallas Love Field Flights

October 14, 2006|From the Associated Press

President Bush signed a law that will eventually eliminate restrictions on long-haul flights from Dallas Love Field, Texas officials said.

Although the limits won't be lifted until 2014, travelers will see an immediate effect. Southwest Airlines Co. has said it would begin selling one-stop tickets -- called through-ticketing -- within days of the bill signing.

Southwest officials were waiting for the Federal Aviation Administration to tell Congress that it could safely manage the airspace over Love Field and nearby Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport under the law.
