CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Southwest Airlines announced Monday its future service details once AirTran Airways is rebranded at Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

The Dallas-based airline will begin its rebranded service on April 14, 2013 with nonstop service to Baltimore Washington, Chicago Midway, Houston Hobby and Orlando International Airports.

Since Southwest bought AirTran in a merger deal last year, the nation's largest low-cost carrier has been slowly integrating Atlanta-based AirTran into its national network.

This will be the airline's first service at Charlotte Douglas.

Southwest currently only serves Raleigh-Durham International Airport in North Carolina.

AirTran service in these cities will end the previous day, April 13, 2013.

To celebrate the new service, the carrier announced a fare sale offering one-way fares on the new routes of between $69 and $159. For example, Customers may travel for $69 one-way between Baltimore/Washington and Charlotte.

These fares must be booked by Oct. 28 for travel between April 14 and May 22, 2013.
