Southwest Airlines Community

23 years, thanks to 53,000 Hearts


Thanks to our more than 53,000 Employees, Southwest is one of Fortune Magazine’s World’s Most Admired Companies for the 23rd consecutive year—the only commercial airline in the Top 10. Southwest ranked #8, an honor made possible through the passion of our dedicated Employees.

The Top 50 Most Admired Companies, what FORTUNE calls the “All-Stars,” is selected by a group of 3,800 executives, directors, and security analysts who picked the 10 companies they admired most. They are able to vote for any company in any industry that ranked in the top 25 percent in last year’s survey, along with those that finished in the top 20 percent in their industry.
