DALLAS - Southwest Airlines will take over routes from AirTran Airways in four cities next April as Southwest continues to combine the two airlines.
Southwest said Monday that AirTran will end several nonstop routes to and from Charlotte, N.C.; Flint, Mich.; Rochester, N.Y.; and Portland, Maine, on April 13.
The flights will begin as Southwest service the next day. The changes are part of Southwest's new schedule, which runs through May.
Southwest Airlines Co. bought AirTran last year. It is gradually phasing out the AirTran operation and folding it into Southwest.
