Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

A Promotional Companion Pass earned through this offer is valid from January 4 to March 4, 2023. Promotional Companion Pass allows you to designate one person to fly with you, free of airline charges (does not include taxes and fees from $5.60 one-way), on flights purchased and flown from January 4 to March 4, 2023.

Once you have qualified, meaning you registered, booked and flew one round trip or two one-way qualifying flight(s) during the applicable dates specified in promotion terms and conditions, you will receive an email from Southwest that includes information on next steps and how to designate and utilize the Promotional Companion Pass. Southwest intends to send this email to all qualifying Members within 10 days after the second flight is completed.

You can designate a Companion after the Promotional Companion Pass has been awarded to your account (January 4, 2023).

After the Promotional Companion Pass has been awarded to your account (January 4, 2023), you can designate your initial Companion within My Account on southwest.com or by calling Southwest at 1-800-435-9792. To change your Companion, you must call 1-800-435-9792

Once your Promotional Companion Pass has been awarded to your account (January 4, 2023), you can book your Companion’s reservation (subject to flight capacity and availability at the time of booking the Promotional Companion Pass).

You may change your designated Companion up to three times during the Promotional Companion Pass period. If you achieve Companion Pass in 2023 by earning 125,000 Companion Pass qualifying points or flying 100 qualifying flights, any changes to the designated Companion during the time you have the Promotional Companion Pass will reduce the number of changes you can make to your designated Companion in the 2023 calendar year. For example, if you earned a promotional Companion Pass through this promotion, changed your designated Companion twice during the validity period for Promotional Companion Pass, and then later in 2023 earned a Companion Pass, you would only be able to change you designated Companion one more time in 2023.
