Southwest Airlines has been a leading low cost carrier in the United States since 1971. At present it flies to 64 destinations across America and averages around 3400 flights daily.
In a bid to out-compete other carriers in the industry, Southwest has created its own version of flexible search. Here is how it works for you:
Log on to Southwest Airlines’ homepage. You can also enter the website through the website’s Travel Tools tab.
Go to Southwest’s Shortcut and look through low fares on offer.
If you need a round-trip ticket, you can choose your Depart and Arrive cities. The Depart City and Round Trip are found in the Return field. If you need a one-way ticket, just fill out the Depart and Arrive fields and enter none in the Return drop down box.
If you are on Travel Date and need a round-trip ticket, choose your Departure Date and Return Date. Select a Departure Date and leave empty the Return Date field if you need only a one-way ticket.
Choose the number of passengers you are traveling with in Passengers.
Click Go to Next Step – Select Travel Dates.
The site will show one or two calendars in the Search Results field.
Review the list and choose your Departing Flight and/or Returning Flight. When you have made your choice, click the Go to Next Step – Price button.
A complete pricing information and itinerary of your chosen flights will appear. Click the Go to Next Step-Purchase button to book your airfare.
Fill out completely the Payment and Passengers Information fields and review the information you keyed in.
