Priority Lanes and Express Lanes
Priority Lane and Express Lane access are dedicated lanes meant to speed our Business Select, Anytime, A-List, and A-list Preferred Members through check-in and security lines. Priority Lanes are located at Southwest check-in counters, and Express Lanes, are at security checkpoints. Benefits available at participating airports.
The following airports have Fly By Priority Lanes available at the Southwest Airlines Ticket Counter: Aruba (AUA), Cancun (CUN), Montego Bay (MBJ), Nassau (NAS), Punta Cana (PUJ), and San Jose del Cabo (SJD).
Punta Cana (PUJ) is the only non-U.S. airport that has a Fly By Priority Lane at the security checkpoint.
The Priority Lane will be indicated with signs within the Southwest check-in area.
For priority lane access, look for “Priority Lane” or “Fly By” signs at the Southwest check-in area.
For Express Lane access at security, look for sign(s) or ask an airport agent if you need further assistance.
