Southwest Airlines and Bay County tourism officials met in Dallas on Wednesday to sign an agreement.
This agreement will put local bed-tax muscle behind the low-cost carrier’s efforts to market the allure of local beaches.
Southwest airlines will provide daily non-stop flights from 4 cities to the new airport. These cities have not been announced yet. The airline officials will adjust flight schedules to meet the new airport’s May 18 grand opening.
The Walton County Tourist Development Council is expected to authorize a deal with Southwest similar to the Bay County agreement for a half-cent bed tax that county recently approved.
