The people at Southwest Airlines are counting down the days until they can fly just about anywhere from Dallas Love Field.
The 34-year-old Wright Amendment expires in one year.
The law was designed to protect the then-fledgling DFW Airport. It limited non-stop flights out of Love Field to other cities in Texas and eight nearby states.
But after Oct. 13, 2014, carriers operating out of Love Field will be able to fly non-stop to any destination in the United States.
Love Field has already made some changes in anticipation. For example, the main terminal has undergone a major upgrade making it more passenger friendly and able to accommodate more people.
Southwest Airlines plans to unveil its new flight schedules in the spring.
Industry experts think those additional non-stop flights could increase competition and mean lower airfare.
