Southwest Airlines Flight Status Messaging

We made the difficult choice to retire Flight Status Notification messaging because of declining usage over the years, as well as a retirement of the technology that powered this feature. But don’t worry—you can continue to use our Automated Flight Status Messaging system, which will automatically send updates about Flight Status changes to the contact information listed in the reservation via text or email. Look to sign up for this feature when making your next booking on the Purchase Page. You may also use our Flight Status lookup tool on or our mobile iOS or Android apps to track the current status of any our flights. Thank you for your understanding, and we’re sorry if you miss the Flight Status Notification tool!
