Southwest Airlines Joins Seaglider Project

“Nonstop to Net Zero” Strategy Finds New Project Southwest Airlines is joining an initiative to bring the Regent Seaglider to the Hawai’ian travel market. The novel hybrid aircraft/watercraft isn’t exactly a totally brand-new idea in theory, but making one a profitable passenger carrier is. Southwest, reeling from a lack of Boeing deliveries, an expensive new contract with pilots, and a downsized flight schedule may be looking to garner some good press at a nice low cost. As such, they hopped along with the Hawai’i Seaglider Initiative, a consortium of local, government, and private sector folks in the island state that believe the Seaglider is key to rejuvenating point-to-point transport.
