Redesigned and Ready for Take-off: Android 3.0 is Here!

Not applicable

Hey Android Users,


We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve rolled out a brand new Android mobile app as part of our ongoing dedication to enhancing the Southwest travel experience! With a user-friendly interface, consistent with its iOS counterpart, the app features exciting updates that increase overall usability and functionality. New Southwest utilities, like purchasing EarlyBird Check-In® when you book, come together with familiar Google products, icons, and design to provide users with a seamless travel experience.




Android App Features:

  • Check-in, book, change, or cancel air reservations
  • Add EarlyBird Check-In® to an existing reservation and add EarlyBird Check-In® when you book.
  • Express checkout
  • View your upcoming flight’s status, boarding position, and gate information from the home page
  • Access your Mobile boarding pass and save it to your device
  • Check your flight status and setup text/email notifications
  • Enroll in and access your Rapid Rewards account
  • View travel/weather advisories
  • Book or cancel rental car reservations
  • Access information on where we fly as well as other helpful airport information

The new mobile app will work on all Android phones that operate OS versions: 7.1, 6.0, 5.0, and 4.4.4. At this time, the app is not optimized for the Android tablet, so tablet users are encouraged to visit or to download the app on their phone.


Users can download the app on the Google Play Store—Southwest Airlines. Links to download the app are also available
