Southwest Airlines on Wednesday announced its schedule for travel from May 9 to Aug. 13.

The carrier will add 65 roundtrip flights and eliminate 24 roundtrip flights for a net gain of 41 roundtrip flights.

The schedule reflects seasonal travel patterns. Southwest thinks demand will increases and flying time decrease during the summer.

The schedule includes fares and flight information for previously announced service to Southwest's newest market, Panama City Beach, Fla., starting May 23.

It also includes previously announced service of seven daily flights to and from Denver. Southwest has added two additional daily flights to the previously announced service, for a total of nine new flights to and from Denver beginning May 9.

Southwest also plans to add 15 additional flights to and from Denver beginning in August.
