Southwest Airlines, Honor Flight, and Independence Day

Adventurer C

Independence Day reminds us all of the freedoms that we enjoy as Americans. It’s also a reminder that these freedoms come with a high price.

This weekend, Southwest Airlines celebrates with the rest of the country those Service members and their families who devote so much to the cause of liberty.

As the Official Airline of the Honor Flight Network, we frequently receive photos of the Honor Flight trips that take place throughout our system year round. Honor Flight Network transports World War II Veterans to visit their memorial in Washington, D.C.


During the third week of June, the Honor Flight Network reached a milestone of transporting 50,000 World War II Veterans.

Congratulations on this exciting achievement! We thought this would be a great moment to share a few photos from these flights.


Thank you to Spokane Knight Scene for allowing us to share its beautiful pictures in honor of our country’s Veterans and to celebrate the Independence Day weekend.
