Those who use the online check-in option with Southwest must have the confirmation number from their ticket purchase as well as the first and last name of the ticket holder. Customers must use the online check-in option at least one hour before the departure time of the flight, and age verification is required for those who are traveling on infant, child or senior fares. Those using military fares must check in at the airport.
Customers who have the EarlyBird Check-In option added to their ticket do not have to check in themselves. Instead, they are automatically checked in 36 hours prior to the scheduled departure time of the flight. These customers can then print their boarding pass online, or they can obtain it at a Southwest counter at the airport.
Southwest also offers the option to check in online but wait until arrival at the airport to obtain a boarding pass at a self-service kiosk or at the Skycap Podium at the airport.Learn more about Geography
