Southwest May Move Headquarters

Southwest Airlines may move its headquarters from Dallas:

Southwest has hinted that Dallas is a less-than-ideal city for its administrative offices because it’s inconvenient to move its people there for meetings. Southwest chief executive Gary Kelly has previously said that if the carrier were picking a new headquarters from scratch

, Dallas wouldn’t make the first cut because of the Wright restrictions.

Southwest is Dallas’ fifth-largest taxpayer, contributing $15 million last year. It provides 5,000 jobs and its activities at Love Field create $2 billion to $3 billion in economic activity, said Ron Ricks, the carrier’s top lobbyist.

If they do move I don’t think Seattle will be high on their list of options.
