PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - Southwest Airlines said it will begin offering flights from Pensacola International Airport to Nashville and Houston.

The president of the greater Pensacola Chamber of Commerce told the Pensacola News Journal  hat the airline's announcement was a big win for the city.

City leaders also said they hope the Southwest service will boost tourism and business in the area. The Nashville and Houston flights are scheduled to begin November 3.
