Showing Our Furry Pals Some Love

Not applicable

This winter, Southwest treated our four-legged Customers traveling from Phoenix to a special surprise. When checking pets in for flights, Employees showed our furry friends some Southwest Hospitality by presenting them with a Southwest-branded collapsible food/water bowl as a "thank you." Phoenix was the top Station in 2015 for originating pet travel. This giveaway was a great way to let our traveling pet Customers know how much we appreciate their business, and they seemed to really love it.  Customers exclaimed, “These are so cute!” and “this is why we love flying Southwest!” The travel-sized bowl is purrfect for keeping pets fed and hydrated when on-the-go. The bowls are compact, easy to clean, can be hooked to a leash or a suitcase handle, or tucked into a carry-on bag. A fun poem was also attached explaining what the bowls are for, along with a friendly reminder for Customers to wait until they’ve gone through TSA Security Checkpoints to fill them up with water. Thank you, Phoenix, for helping us unleash the adventure! Interested in getting your favorite VIP (Very Important Pet) some Southwest accessories? Click here!
