Busy Holiday Travel: The busy holiday season has arrived and more travelers wanna get away. Plan to arrive early at the airport to navigate the larger crowds. Use our Help Center or features in our mobile app to book, change, or cancel your flight. At the airport, use the self-service kiosk to help with a variety of pre-flight tasks.

The Southwest Promise (cleanliness and social distancing)
If you cancel a flight with a nonrefundable fare, you'll receive flight credits (think of it like store credit!). You can track your flight credits by logging into your Rapid Rewards® account, and/or search for unused flight credits, or via the Southwest app.
When you're ready to use them, you can apply flight credits toward a new flight on Southwest.com or through our app using the original confirmation number from your modified or canceled flight(s).
