Dallas-based low-cost carrier Southwest Airlines (NYSE: LUV) said it has inked a multi-year sponsorship of the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta USA.
Southwest said that a number of inductees in the Hall´s 2013 Enshrinement Class joined the carrier´s employees as they flew to Atlanta for this week´s enshrinement ceremony.
In 2009, the College Football Hall of Fame opted to relocate in Georgia from Indiana. With the support of Southwest Airlines and other corporate sponsors, the Hall is taking shape in downtown Atlanta near the Omni Hotel at CNN Center. It will open in August 2014.
Adding the Hall to its physical investment in Georgia communities, Southwest is also the official airline of the Atlanta Falcons and a presenting sponsor of the Georgia Aquarium, as well as a partner of Piedmont Park Conservancy where the Southwest Porch at Park Tavern offers a year-round venue in Atlanta´s most visited greenspace.
Southwest Airlines serves 97 destinations in 41 states, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and six near-international countries.
