Southwest Introduces Online Checkin

By TravelGuy,

Recommended Posts

Just got this e-mail from Southwest:

Beginning February 5, 2004, Southwest Airlines is introducing

Online Checkin systemwide, which means you can get your

boarding pass before you leave the house. All it takes is a

Ticketless reservation, access to the Internet, and a printer.

You can start checking in at 12:01 a.m. local time the day of

travel. As always, boarding passes will be distributed on a

first-come, first-served basis. Once you print your boarding

pass, simply go through the Security Checkpoint to your

Departure Gate.* Please note that you will not be able to

check in at southwest.com® if you have multiple passengers

on the same reservation.

Should you need to change your reservation after you print

your boarding pass, go to the Travel Center at southwest.com

and cancel your boarding pass. Then change your reservation

and print a new boarding pass. If your travel includes

connections, you must pick up your boarding pass for your

connecting flight at the Departure Gate in your connecting

city. Also, note that while Online Checkin means you miss the

lines, it's still important to be on time as reservations and

boarding passes are cancelled ten minutes prior to flight time

if you are not in the gate area ready to board.

Imagine going through checkin while you quietly sip coffee

in your pajamas. Or spending those few extra minutes at the

office instead of standing in line. Flying faster doesn't

get any better than this. For Online Checkin, please visit:

We hope to have you online and onboard real soon!
