Southwest Airlines begins new daily service Tuesday to Spokane from Sacramento – part of the airline’s biggest boost in flights at Sacramento International Airport since the recession a decade ago.

In April, the airline announced that there would be six new daily flights this year, including new routes to Long Beach and Spokane, and added flights on existing routes to Seattle and San Diego.

That brings Southwest’s total to 80 flights a day in Sacramento, making the capital city the 16th busiest airport in Southwest’s 100-city service base. Southwest is Sacramento’s largest carrier, providing more than half of the airport’s daily flights.
