Southwest Airlines recently republished its October schedule.  They will operate daily nonstop service to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.  Flights will operate every day except Saturdays.  They will reduce the Denver service to one daily, except on Saturdays when there will be two.  This will give Wichita travelers daily service to Phoenix, Denver, Las Vegas, and two daily flights to St. Louis.  Southwest has weekly fare sales, plus a low-fare calendar that is handy if your schedule is flexible.  Book your trips at
