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.
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.
Upgrade your boarding position for only $30, $40 or $50
With Upgraded Boarding, you can get in the A1 - A15 boarding group for just $30, $40, or $50, depending on your itinerary. Ask a friendly Southwest Airlines Customer Service Agent at your gate before the boarding process begins.
Family boarding is available
Children age six years or younger and a guardian may board before the "B" boarding group.
