LINTHICUM, Md. (AP) — Southwest Airlines is adding two new nonstop flights to Portland, Ore., and Oakland, Calif., from Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.

The seasonal service announced Monday will begin on June 8. The new destinations from BWI Airport were part of the airline's June 2014 schedule update.

Portland is a new market for BWI travelers. The airport says Oakland will complement other flights to the San Francisco area.

Airport CEO Paul Wiedefeld says the new service means more flight options for business and leisure travel between the East and West coasts. He says it will help BWI drive transportation, economic development and tourism.

Southwest is BWI's largest airline. Along with its subsidiary AirTran Airways, Southwest serves nearly 71 percent of BWI's passenger traffic.
