We can take your team to hundreds of destinations across the country on your schedule
If your company or school is traveling with enough people to fill a whole aircraft, then Southwest Airlines Charters could be an option for you. Customers can travel by their schedule to any destination in the Continental US that can support a commercial 737 operation. You’ll receive great award winning service from Southwest Airlines employees that you’ve become accustomed to on our scheduled service flights. Whether you’re a college football team traveling to an away game, corporate employees gathering for a meeting or company employees traveling to an annual meeting, Southwest Airlines is there to handle your travel needs.
There are two types of charters, Private and Public.
A Private charter is one where the cost is paid by the charterer not by the individual passengers.
A Public charter is one where the cost of the charter is paid by the individual passengers. Public charters need to meet guidelines set down by the Department of Transportation. These guidelines can be found here http://www.dot.gov/policy/aviation-policy/licensing/public-charters
Charter pricing is based on scheduling, the amount of flying required including empty positioning and repositioning flights, aircraft availability, and is for the entire aircraft. If you compare individual per seat prices charters are normally more expensive than our published air fares on a regularly scheduled flight.
Example for one way charter prices, including all current taxes and fees:
