ST. LOUIS (AP) - Southwest Airlines has hit 100 departures each day from Lambert-St. Louis International Airport.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch ( ) reports that the airline is the airport’s largest carrier, with about half the market share, and has its own terminal.

Southwest’s managing director of business development, Dave Harvey, says this month is the first time in more than a decade that one airline has had more than 100 daily departures from the airport.

Southwest has added 11 new destinations from St. Louis in the past year. Its newest nonstop flights are to Cleveland; Portland, Oregon; and Oakland, California. St. Louis passengers were already able to get direct flights to Portland and Cleveland on other airlines, but Oakland is a new nonstop destination for the airport.
