Introducing: A Beautiful Southwest Boeing 737-800

Explorer B

As you know, the -800 represents many exciting opportunities for Southwest’s future.  And, in some ways, it seems like only yesterday that we announced our intentions of adding this longer-range, more economical aircraft to our fleet.  Months later, we were already adding the lines of flight the -800 will cover into our flight schedule.  And now, I’m especially proud and excited to share this video of our very first -800—aircraft number 8301—fresh from the assembly line and paint shop.
