Have you visited southwest.com today? You might have noticed a whole new look! We've revamped the homepage to make it easier for Customers to find what they need.
The homepage now includes a navigation tool that's consistent throughout the site. The navigation tool is meant to make booking flights, hotels, and car rentals a snap! Here are a few more of the exciting changes you will see:
• The homepage image and other features can be personalized and pre-populated to the user’s home airport. Saved searches make it easier for Customers to shop for flights, cars, and hotels. • Customers can now easily plan any part of their trip directly from the homepage with new car and hotel booking widgets. • New pages have been added to highlight how Southwest Airlines is different from its competitors. • Every page of the site has updated, easy-to-use navigation and a search box to help users find exactly what they are looking for. • Drop downs are available from the global navigation to help users get to interior pages faster. • Every page now has a social media bar to help users engage with Southwest on social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Nuts About Southwest.
These changes are a part of a larger effort to make southwest.com a full-service travel site. We made some changes last year (like TravelGuide and a new Special Offers page) and you can expect to see a few more throughout 2010.
Stay tuned for an online scavenger hunt! Next week, we'll have a contest to encourage fans to explore the new site and you could win roundtrip tickets!
So there might be a sleek new look, but we've got the same low fares, only on southwest.com!
