Herbert “Herb” Kelleher 1931-2019

It is with sadness that the Lone Star Flight Museum notes the passing of Texas Aviation Hall of Fame member Herbert “Herb” Kelleher, who was inducted in 1998.  Originally an attorney, Kelleher, along with businessman Rollin King and banker John Parker envisioned a low cost airline to improve travel between Houston, Dallas and San Antonio.  That airline became Southwest Airlines.  Herb Kelleher’s colorful and fun-loving style created a unique corporate culture and set him apart as a leader and embodies the spirit of those entrepreneurs and innovators who are enshrined in the Texas Aviation Hall of Fame.
