How do I connect to WiFi on my Southwest flight?


Every device is different but here are the basic steps:

  1. Head to your Settings. Switch your device to Airplane Mode, then turn your WiFi on.
  2. Choose SouthwestWiFi from your WiFi network list. A new page will appear with a link to or with an option to copy the URL. Click on the link or copy it into your browser.
  3. If the Inflight Entertainment Portal doesn't load automatically, type  into the address bar.
  4. Select your entertainment and enjoy! Certain content may require downloading the Southwest app. 

Note: Please ensure your device is switched to "airplane mode" once the aircraft doors are closed. WiFi will remain on and accessible for taxi, takeoff, and landing.
