Around 500 Southwest customers flew out of closed Houston Hobby Airport Sunday.

Five of the airline’s stranded Boeing 737s flew out of the flooded airport Sunday evening back to Love Field in Dallas, according to one of the sources.

Without working airport lights at Hobby Airport, the Southwest aircraft had to move quickly before the sun set over the storm-battered city.

Separately, with those five aircraft able to depart Sunday, the airline still has 10 remaining aircraft on the ground at Hobby, according to the sources.
