Southwest Airlines began flying to and from Iowa for the first time this weekend with new service at Des Moines International Airport.

The Dallas-based airline (NYSE: LUV) took over two flights from its subsidiary, AirTran Airways. Southwest will fly twice a day to Chicago Midway International Airport.

The change increased seat availability for customers to 274 seats per day, up from 100 seats per day provided by the AirTran service.

“Our arrival in Des Moines represents one of the true benefits of our integration with AirTran Airways, allowing us to continue to bring low fares and legendary Customer Service to the people of Des Moines,” said Ron Ricks, Southwest executive vice president.
