  • Pick a seat, any seat

    At Southwest®, we let you sit where you like. We don’t assign seats on our flights, so feel free to sit in any available seat once you board the plane.

  • General boarding

    We have a quick, easy, and efficient boarding process. Look at your boarding pass to find your assigned boarding group (A, B, or C) and boarding position (1 - 60). When your group is called, stand by the column with your number on it until it’s your turn to board.

  • With Business Select®, you’re always a line leader

    If you want a guaranteed A1-A15 boarding position, be sure to purchase a Business Select® fare.
