Southwest Airlines plans to discontinue its nonstop flight from Charlotte to Orlando as of Nov. 1, the company said Monday.

A spokesman said it’s possible that the flight could return – Southwest hasn’t loaded its schedule past Jan. 4 – but added there’s no indication as of now that the flight will come back.

Southwest started flying from Charlotte last year, after acquiring low-cost carrier AirTran. The airline currently offers six daily nonstop flights to four destinations: Orlando International Airport, Houston’s Hobby Airport, Baltimore-Washington International, and Chicago Midway International.

Southwest’s flights from Charlotte to its other three destinations won’t change, the company said.
