Southwest Airlines' flight information can be checked on the website. Customers can check the status of upcoming departures or arrivals, flight schedules and route maps.
Flight status is searched by entering the departure and arrival city and the date of the flight, or by searching for the flight number. Flight schedules are shown according to the day or week searched, or by entering the desired departure and arrival cities in the search fields. In addition, customers looking to save money can search flights by fare. Southwest offers a low-fare calendar, which customers search by month to find the cheapest time to fly.
Southwest Airlines flies a number of popular routes and destinations in the United States, including Atlanta, Los Angeles, Phoenix and several routes to Las Vegas. Southwest also operates a few international flights that service destinations in Mexico, the Bahamas, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic.
Southwest Airlines offers vacation packages, which include hotel accommodations and car rentals in addition to flights. Customers are given the choice of bundling all three, or just airfare and hotel, or airfare and car rental. Vacation deals offered by Southwest can result in savings in dollar amount or percentage of the total value of the package, or deals may depend on choosing specific accommodations and destinations.
