Southwest Airlines Bumps Up Fares

DALLAS (AP) – Southwest Airlines is raising fares on flights of less than 500 miles by $10 per round trip.

The fare hike applies to about one-third of Southwest’s routes.

The company says it needs the increase to cover costs.

United and Delta have already matched the increase.
