Wally DeverauxDALLAS: November 23, 2018. Southwest Airlines has promoted several executives within the company to senior roles including Wally Devereaux (pictured) as managing director Cargo and Charters.

The airline veteran, who has been with Southwest for over 26 years, is a former senior director Cargo and Charters.

"We are fortunate to have such a strong and deep leadership bench among our ranks," said Southwest Airlines chairman and CEO Gary Kelly. "We've never had a more talented team of leaders in our history, and together the Southwest Family has never had a brighter future.”

Last month the company reported a 5.1 rise year-on-year in Q3 revenue to a record US$5.6 billion and net income of US$614 million.

"I am grateful to our people for their hard work and resilience, as we continue to consistently deliver stellar margins and returns,” said Kelly. “With these results, we accrued an additional US$135 million in profit sharing for the benefit of our employees and provided US$591 million of share buybacks and dividends for our shareholders.

"For next year, Hawaii is our expansion focus,” he added. In May the airline announced plans to serve four destinations: Honolulu, Kahului Airport on Mau, Lihue Airport on Kauai, and Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport at Keahole on the leewood side of Hawaii island.

Following FAA approval, Southwest inends operating its B737 MAX aircraft on nonstop flights from four points in California to Hawaii: Oakland, San Diego, Mineta San Jose and Sacramento.

In mid-November the company announced its 169th consecutive quarterly dividend to shareholders.
