The good times were rolling as Southwest Airlines celebrated 35 years at Kansas City International Airport on Wednesday, and much to the delight of travelers, flight attendant Julia Pavlicek was dancing to an '80s tune played by a DJ during the festivities at Gate 39 in Terminal B. The celebration included remarks from Mayor Sly James, Pat Klein, Director of Aviation, and Jane McAtee, Southwest’s regional leader for community affairs, who said Southwest has grown from two nonstop destinations at Kansas City International Airport in 1982 to serving 30 nonstop destinations from the airport today. Last year, Southwest carried 4 million inbound and outbound passengers at KCI. Southwest Airlines also made a donation to Turn The Page KC, a charity favored by the mayor.
