DENVER ” Southwest Airlines has scheduled a news conference for Wednesday and is expected to announce an expansion of its Denver service.

Chief Executive Officer Gary Kelly will be joined for the announcement by Mayor John Hickenlooper. Southwest spokeswoman Marilee McInnis declined additional comment Tuesday.

The airline said Denver is one of its fastest-growing cities with 56 daily flights, up from 13 when it launched service in January 2006 at Denver International Airport.

Southwest competes with United and Frontier airlines at DIA, an aggressive battle which has benefited customers by forcing lower fares.
