Southwest Airlines Community

The Flight Brigade Takes ATL by Storm!

Not applicable

All eyes were drawn to the Southwest Airlines Flight Brigade last Saturday as they strutted down Peachtree Street in Atlanta, waiving their wands in perfect unison. 

The SWA Flight Brigade, joined by their friends at AirTran, were one of the highlights of The Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Christmas Parade, an annual event to kick off the holiday season.  Not only does the parade raise funds for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta but it also provides a sense of community for Atlantans and entertainment for all. 

And entertaining it was! 

ATL Children's Parade

The Flight Brigade, which consists of Southwest Employees from all over the country, performed spectacular routines down the parade route, a testament to the practice and hard work they've put in. The appearance of both Southwest and AirTran in the parade reflected the close relationship Employees have developed as our two airlines continue to grow into one. As the SWA Flight Brigade and AirTran marched along the route, they were warmly greeted with folks chanting, “Bags Fly Free,” and “Atlanta LUVS Southwest." The unique Southwest Culture was in full effect.  

Southwest Airlines is proud to be a part of this wonderful event, and so proud to support the Atlanta Community.
