Southwest Airlines Flights

Information about Southwest Airlines

Passengers on Southwest Airlines choose their flights because they're flying with a carrier that is committed to getting them to their destinations on time, at the cheapest possible price. Southwest pioneered the notion of different prices for seats, depending on when customers book their journeys. The idea from the start was that this would be a different sort of airline, one with no frills, but with the maximum enjoyment. This idea has spread to other budget airlines around the world and inspired the founding of easyJet in the UK. Southwest believes that it should:

  • Get passengers to their destinations on time, cheaply
  • Give everyone a good time in flight
  • Fly to as many US destinations as possible
