We've partnered with Lyft to give Customers a better day-of-travel experience. Book your ride through the SWA app up to four hours before your flight and make the trip to the airport a breeze. If your location services are turned on, you'll see your estimated airport arrival time and cost—right on the home screen of the app. Sign into the Southwest app with your Rapid Rewards number and include it on your reservation so you can try it out on your next trip!
View your boarding pass directly in your browser, save it to your phone via Apple Wallet or Google Pay, or save it to your photos from an Android device. Present your mobile boarding pass at security checkpoints and during boarding and you're done! That's it. Trust us, we love it as much as you do.
If using an iPhone, you can add your boarding pass directly to Apple Wallet. Have an Apple Watch? You can access your boarding pass once it is saved to Apple Wallet.

On initial launch of the iOS app, you will be prompted to opt into push notifications. If you choose to opt in, you will start to receive push notifications. If you decide you do not want push notifications at the time of launch, you are always able to either opt in or out via your app settings.
Of course! You can manage your preferences within your app settings at any time.
You’ll receive relevant information that will help in your overall trip planning and day of travel. You may receive notifications for check in, when your flight is boarding, and confirmation on your boarding position if you are A-list or A-list Preferred, as well as if you have EarlyBird Check-In®.
If you have the Southwest iOS app on your iPhone version 8.0 or above, you can opt in for push notifications. We have plans to add this functionality in the future to our Android app.
If you're using Android, your picture and notes will stay in the parking spot tool even if you sign out of the app and can only be deleted by you. If you're using an iPhone, your picture and notes will not stay in the tool if you sign out of the app. Please note that if you upload a picture of your car, that picture could include personal information such as your VIN number or license plate number, so please be careful who you let use your app while you have a parking spot saved. Southwest will never share your notes or photos for any reason other than to provide you with the parking spot tool functionality.
