Tripware Travel App Adds Southwest Support

Mesa, Arizona-based Tripware, operators of a Web site and travel service for business travelers, revealed Thursday that Southwest Airlines customers can now book flights directly in Microsoft Outlook through Tripware's OutBook application. With the addition of Southwest, Tripware said, it now provides business travelers the ability to book flights with eight of the country's top 10 carriers. Tripware noted that the new Southwest-booking feature is also available through the non-Outlook version of its OutBook app, Tripware Travel Center. Tripware added that it plans to add other carriers and international destinations later this year.
