Southwest® offers four fares–Business Select®, Anytime, Wanna Get Away+®, and Wanna Get Away®–as well as a few unique fares (military fares) and optional services. You can book most of these fares and services online, but a few services require you to call our Customer Representatives, and/or purchase in-airport.
Fares may vary based on destination, flight, day and time of travel, demand, fare type selected, and other factors. If you change any of these factors, lower fares may be available. Fares may be available for a limited time or limited number of seats. Fares are subject to change until tickets are purchased. Reservations must be made at least one hour prior to departure for domestic flights and two hours for international flights. When combining fares, all rules and restrictions apply.

5EarlyBird Check-In means you will automatically be checked in to your flight 36 hours prior to scheduled departure. Anytime and YCA government fares must be ticketed 36 or more hours prior to scheduled departure in order to receive EarlyBird Check-In. For Anytime and YCA fares purchased between 36 and 24 hours, the boarding position assignment process has begun so this may impact the boarding position assigned to you. If you purchase an Anytime or YCA fare within 24 hours of your flight’s scheduled departure, you will not receive the EarlyBird Check-In benefit. In an irregular operation situation, the boarding position is not guaranteed.
