RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Southwest Airlines has begun offering daily nonstop flights from Richmond to Orlando, Fla.

Southwest senior vice president Dave Ridley tells the Richmond Times-Dispatch that additional destinations from Richmond International Airport would depend in large part on how the market responds to the airline's service.

Greater Richmond Chamber president and CEO Kim Scheeler says Southwest's entry into Richmond creates more opportunities for businesses to broaden markets.
