Nyemaster Goode, P.C.

The Southwest Connection

January 31, 2012

An article in the Business section of the January 29 edition of The Des Moines Sunday Register noted how Nyemaster Goode attorney Ed Hansell was a catalyst in bringing Dallas-based Southwest Airlines to Des Moines. Don Smithey, who had been instrumental in bringing Southwest's service to Omaha, had moved to Des Moines and Hansell, then a member of the Des Moines airport advisory board, had arranged for Smithey to consult with the board on airport matters. Smithey later stepped in to serve as Executive Director of the airport, and under his guidance, the Des Moines Airport Authority was established in November 2011, chaired by Ed Hansell. Southwest Airlines announced January 21, 2012, that it will be providing service to Des Moines.
